Morocco-European Union First summit for further rapprochement


The Morocco-European Union summit, slated for March 6-7, is a significant stride for further rapprochement between the two parties, said on Thursday the European Council.

The council explained that this first Morocco-EU summit will focus on a number of issues: bilateral relations, immigration, the peace process in the Middle-East, the Union for the Mediterranean, the situation in Africa, climate change and the global economic downturn.

For his part, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos said that this summit is a strong and important sign towards a neighbor of the European Union.

The meeting, to take place in Granada (southern Spain), will see the participation of the president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, and the European Commission president.
