The High-Level Meeting scheduled for early 2023

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Living Abroad, Nasser Bourita, announced that the Morocco-Spain High Level Meeting (HLM) is scheduled for early next year.

Bourita, who was speaking at a press briefing on the occasion of the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on the establishment of a Green Partnership with the European Union (EU), indicated that this meeting will be an “important moment” in the new phase of relations between Rabat and Madrid triggered after discussions between King Mohammed VI and the President of the Spanish government, Pedro Sanchez, last April.

“The High-Level Meeting is an important moment in our bilateral relations” with Madrid, he said, adding that it will take place early next year on a date to be fixed by mutual agreement between the two countries.

“It will be an important moment that will reflect this positive state of mind, this state of mind oriented towards the respect of the commitments that drive the Moroccan-Spanish relationship today”, he underlined, recalling that the Joint Declaration between Rabat and Madrid adopted at the end of discussions between the King and Pedro Sanchez “clarifies the principles which define this new phase and helps to define priorities and to clarify positions on issues of interest to both countries”.

Since this joint declaration, a roadmap has been established which is the subject of concerted work with the Spanish government, the minister said.

“All the working groups have been activated with many elements that have been implemented and all the commitments contained in the roadmap will be respected and achieved,” he said, adding that the two partners will also have “enough time to prepare the parliamentary forum, the businessmen’s forum and the mobilization of all the players in this relationship. »
