Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates in response to statements by the President of the Spanish government
Morocco is not used of getting involved in controversies over statements by senior officials from foreign countries. However, today's comment by the head of the Spanish government, rejecting the Moroccan statement by linking it to migration, comes as a great surprise and calls for the following clarifications:
  1. We do not know which Moroccan statement the head of the Spanish government is referring to. All the latest statements by Moroccan diplomatic officials including the minister, His Majesty's Ambassador to Madrid and the Director General do not mention the migration issue.

  2. The statement issued today by the Ministry and widely quoted by the Spanish media outlets, addresses briefly the migratory question, and it does so to recall the good cooperation. It is therefore legitimate to wonder if the head of the Spanish government has read the various statements inherent in this crisis and in particular that of today.

  3. In Morocco, the management of the crisis concerns several state institutions and departments, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which only represents, within the framework of its prerogatives, the national position at the diplomatic and media levels.

  4. Morocco has repeatedly stressed that the bilateral crisis is not linked to the migration issue. The genesis and the underlying reasons behind the crisis are now well known, notably to the Spanish public opinion. Migration should not be a pretext to distract attention from the real causes of the bilateral crisis.
