02.07.2017 Brussels

Joint statement by the High Representative and Vice-President of the European Commission, Mrs. Federica Mogherini, and the Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. Nasser Bourita, following their meeting on Tuesday 7 February 2017 in Brussels.


Today, the High Representative and Vice-President of the European Commission, Mrs. Federica Mogherini, and the Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. Nasser Bourita, held a meeting on the evolution of the relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the European Union. The President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker attended part of the meeting.

The meeting follows on the Joint Declaration of 21 December by the High Representative and HE Salaheddine Mezouar, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, following the decision of the European Court of Justice on the Agriculture Agreement between the European Union and Morocco.

Morocco is a key partner of the European Union and the European Union is a key partner of Morocco. Both parties remain committed to and engaged in the defence of this partnership. This partnership between the European Union and Morocco spans half a century. It is an exemplary, rich and multidimensional partnership. The European Union and Morocco are determined to preserve and develop the partnership in its various dimensions.

Both sides recognized the importance of maintaining stable trade relations. They agreed that the technical teams will be meeting soon to elaborate in detail the way forward.

Discussions between the European Union and Morocco will continue in a climate of serenity and mutual trust, in order to agree on the arrangements necessary for the continued development of relations between the two parties, notably in the field of agriculture. Pending the conclusion of these discussions, appropriate measures will be taken if necessary to secure the implementation of the existing Free Trade Agreement for processed agricultural products and fisheries between the European Union and Morocco and to preserve the partnership's achievements in this area.

Recalling the strategic importance of their relations, both sides expressed their willingness to resume work and expand cooperation in all areas of common interest.

The High Representative / Vice-President seized this opportunity to commend and personally congratulate Morocco on its return to the African Union. The two sides agreed to work together to strengthen the mutual synergies of their partnership on regional and Pan-African issues.
