Spain’s Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food, Luis Planas, affirmed that Morocco is setting an “example” for the region’s countries in terms of democracy and economic development.
On the sidelines of a reception hosted on July 30 in Madrid by Morocco’s ambassador to Spain, Karima Benyaich, in celebration of the 24th anniversary of His Majesty King Mohammed VI’s accession to the throne of His glorious Ancestors, Planas stated that “Morocco’s achieved progress promotes the Kingdom as an example for other Arab and African countries in terms of democracy, economic development, and respect for human rights.”
The Spanish official emphasized that “Morocco, as Europe’s gateway to Africa, is of great importance for both Spain and Europe, and also the African continent,” recalling the “strategic, solid, and future-oriented” relations uniting Morocco and Spain.
“Morocco-Spain relations are strategic for the two countries and we are committed to ensuring their positive development at the economic, social, and human levels,” affirmed Planas, adding that the two Kingdoms enjoy “strategic relations of friendship, cooperation, and good neighborliness.”
“We live in a very complex world, and despite this situation, Spain and Morocco have built a very solid relationship and are determined to further strengthen this relationship in the future,” concluded the Spanish official.
