Rabat – High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said, here Friday, that Morocco-EU agreements “do not violate international law”.
“The EU remains convinced that agreements with Morocco do not violate international laws,” Mogherini told the press following her talks with Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Salaheddine Mezouar, adding that for this reason “an appeal has been lodged at the European Court of Justice against December 10, 2015 ruling” on the Morocco-EU agriculture agreement.
Mogherini said she is “aware of the strategic importance” of this issue for Morocco and EU, noting that the European Council “disagrees” with the court ruling.
She said that she has provided the necessary clarifications and assurances during her talks with Moroccan authorities, adding that EU and Morocco will work as genuine partners on this issue.
To this end, regular, continuous and transparent interaction and dialogue will be conducted, she underlined, adding that Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation will visit Brussels before the end of this month to finalize the content of this interaction with the European side.
