On the occasion of this meeting, the Prime Minister of the Spanish government reiterated to His Majesty the King, may Allah preserve Him, the position of Spain, included in the joint declaration of April 2022, and which considers the Moroccan autonomy initiative as the most serious, realistic and credible basis for the resolution of this dispute.
