Press Release: Meeting following Netherlands’ decision to revoke the Convention on Social Security
Rabat 10.16.2014

A meeting was held, on Wednesday October 15th 2014, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, presided over by Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, and attended by Mr. Anis Birou Minister of Moroccans living Abroad and Migration Affairs, Mr Abdesslam Seddiki, Minister of Employment and Social Affairs and Mrs. Mbarka Bouaida, Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. 

The meeting focused on exploring ways to implement, following the unilateral decision taken, on October 10th 2014, by the Government of the Netherlands, to introduce, at the Dutch Parliament, for approval, a bill to revoke the Convention on social security, concluded between Morocco and the Netherlands, in 1972.

On this occasion, the position of rejecting this decision was reiterated, in a firm and resolute way.

All necessary steps will be taken to strengthen the defence of the interests, achievements and rights of the members of the Moroccan community, targeted by the Dutch government’s initiative.

Within this spirit, actions are considered both at the political and legal levels. Similarly, all institutional players as well as those of the civil society will be sensitized and mobilized to handle this new situation, which would not remain without consequences on our bilateral relations.
