​This is the first official visit to Rabat that Josep Borrell, The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, has undertaken, at the invitation of his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita.

The Ministers reiterated the firm commitment of both countries to continue deepening and diversifying a relationship described as strategic by both parties, and to further progress the development within the visits and meetings framework that has been foreseen. 

In the course of those working-level consultations, both Ministers congratulated themselves on the excellent relationships that include an intensive political dialogue, an exemplary cooperation on migrations and security and a significant deployment in terms of educational and cultural cooperation. The Ministers welcomed the positive evolution of the bilateral economic relationships that have enabled to double the trade figures between both countries over the last six years; as a result, Spain has been consolidated as the primary trading partner of Morocco.

Both Ministers agreed that the reinforcement of the privileged and unique relationship between the European Union and Morocco must be deepened further, promoting the complete development of the Morocco’s Advanced Status.

Likewise, the last events on the regional and international scene, including the situation in the EU, the cooperation processes in the Mediterranean, the Libyan crisis, and the situation in the Middle East and in Western Sahara were discussed.
