JOINT STATEMENT BY MR. JOSEP BORELL, HIGH REPRESENTATIVE OF THE EU FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND SECURITY POLICY AND MR. NASSER BOURITA, MOROCCAN MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
29 September 2021
We have taken note of the judgments delivered today by the General Court of the European Union, concerning the decisions of the Council of the European Union relating to the conclusion of the amendments to Protocols 1 and 4 of the Association Agreement between the European Union and the Kingdom of Morocco relating to agricultural products and others and the partnership agreement in the field of sustainable fishing.
We will take the necessary measures to ensure the legal framework which guarantees the continuity and stability of trade relations between the European Union and the Kingdom of Morocco.
We remain fully mobilized to maintain cooperation between the European Union and the Kingdom of Morocco, in a climate of serenity and commitment, in order to consolidate the Euro-Moroccan Shared Prosperity Partnership, launched in June 2019. We will continue to work to develop the multiple dimensions of this strategic partnership, in the same spirit of mobilization, coherence and solidarity.
This equal partnership is based on a solid bilateral relationship, based on trust and mutual respect, between the Kingdom of Morocco and the European Union, while contributing to the strengthening of this relationship and that with member states.
