European deputies denounced, Friday, the counterproductive character of a resolution adopted by some of their colleagues on Morocco.
For MEP Nicolas Bay, whose political group refused to vote for this controversial text that antagonizes a strategic partner of the EU, it is the Spanish government that must be blamed.
“The Spanish socialist government is largely responsible for the incidents in Ceuta by hosting a figure of the polisario, an anti-Moroccan terrorist organization,” said the French MEP on Twitter.
For his part, the MEP Younous Omarjee stressed that this resolution “does not do useful work”.
“I voted against this resolution, because when difficulties arise, it is necessary to promote the conditions for better dialogue and not add additional difficulties. This is what I criticize this resolution which, in my opinion, does not do any useful work,” he told MAP.
The political dialogue between the European Union and Morocco “is not broken”, noted Omarjee, from the group of the left in the European Parliament.
“In the respect of each other, it is necessary to look at the difficulties that may arise with a member state in its relations with a third country, with a cool head and help to settle rather than by taking positions,” he pointed out.
“Everyone has a part to play. Given that Morocco is an important partner for the European Union to meet the shared objectives for security, the migration challenge and development,” he concluded.
