The President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sanchez, assured on Monday in Madrid that the new roadmap established between Spain and Morocco last April, during his visit to Morocco at the invitation of King Mohammed VI, places “bilateral cooperation on more solid pillars”.
This new stage in relations between the two countries will also strengthen ”mutual trust”stressed Sanchez, who chaired the 7th Conference of Spanish Ambassadors Accredited Abroad.
Furthermore, the President of the Spanish Government stressed the importance of ”stability” of North Africa for ”moving towards more prosperous cooperation”.
”Stability and security in our southern neighborhood must remain a top priority”he said.
”I said earlier that during the Spanish Presidency of the European Union, we are going to organize a summit with the Southern Neighborhood at European level to implement and develop this positive agenda that we must have with our southern neighbours”said Sanchez.
On the basis of the new roadmap, the two countries are committed, among other things, to dealing with subjects of common interest in a “spirit of trust and consultation”while reactivating the working groups created between the two countries to relaunch multi-sector bilateral cooperation.
