Among the 11 agreements signed recently between Morocco and Spain, the Moroccan Parliament has approved two so far.
Rabat – Morocco approved two draft laws related to two agreements signed on February 13 between Spain and Morocco signed during the Spanish King’s visit in the country.
The weekly government council on Thursday in Rabat approved Draft Law 15.19 related to the agreement on cooperation against crime in all its forms, signed by Morocco’s Minister of the Interior Abdelouafi Laftit and his Spanish counterpart Fernando Grande-Marlaska Gomez.
The agreement also establishes cooperation on eliminating terrorism and tracking down terrorist financing, fighting drug trafficking, human trafficking, arbitrary arrest and detention, property crimes, money laundering, illicit trade of firearms, explosives, and nuclear materials.
The second, Draft Law 16.19 is related to the agreement on Spain’s irrevocable offer of Tangier’s Teatro Cervantes (Grand Theater Cervantes) to Morocco.
The agreement was also signed by the two ministers, Laftit and Gomez.
The other agreements that the government council has not yet approved are related to collaboration on energy, culture, trade, and aeronautics, among others.
The official visit of King Felipe VI of Spain to Morocco on February 13 paved the way for stronger cooperations between the two neighboring countries.
The visit reflected the “depth and quality of bilateral ties thanks to the shared will to foster the multidimensional strategic partnership uniting the two neighboring and friendly countries,” stated the Moroccan Ministry of Royal Household, Protocol, and Chancellery.
