OFFICIAL STATEMENT 083
Condemnation of incident at Moroccan Consulate in Valencia

Spain expresses its outright condemnation of any action that contravenes the principles and values of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic and Consular Relations of 1961 and 1963, which it is a party to and a firm proponent of.


15/11/2020
Accordingly, Spain expresses its outright condemnation of the events that unfolded today by participants in a demonstration called by the Federation of Associations of Solidarity with the Saharawi People of the Region of Valencia outside the Consulate-General of Morocco in Valencia, who climbed up the building’s flagpole to try and hang the Saharawi flag, thereby violating the inviolability, integrity and dignity of the consular office.

No demonstration of the right to assembly can degenerate into illegal actions, such as today’s attempt to hang this flag, which is in clear breach of prevailing legality. The government has proceeded to clarify the events and will continue to take the opportune measures to ensure respect for the integrity and inviolability of accredited diplomatic missions in our country.
