First step in firm for the recovery of diplomatic relations between Spain and Morocco, after Mohamed VI publicly expressed his desire to open an "unpublished" stage in the collaboration with Madrid. The Foreign Ministry has reported this afternoon that José Manuel Albaresha had a telephone conversation with his counterpart, Nasser Burita, and who have agreed to "maintain a meeting in person, soon", since a meeting in New York has not been possible, in The framework of the UN General Assembly. Albares is there but Burita does not attend the appointment.
The horizon of this meeting, which will predictably be in Rabat, has just normalized the communication between both countries, which Morocco has dynamited after the Spanish decision to host in a Hospital de Logroño to the leader of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali. This fact produced the greatest political crisis with the African neighbor from parsley. The Alauí monarchy used it to punish Spain and, fundamentally, at the time Minister Arancha González Laya, not to support Donald Trump's decision to recognize the Marrowo del Sahara.
And to be crystalline with its anger, after several statements against Spain and its minister, in which the Moroccan reception was gained consequences, Rabat promoted and allowed the arrival of thousands of Moroccans to Ceuta's coasts to make evident what Speak if they do not control their border.
Little by little, the situation normalized but Pedro Sánchez ended up sacrificing Laya in the renovation of his cabinet in July, as proof of the willingness to resume the relationship with Morocco. She no longer maintained interlocution with Burita, who was not even placed on the phone, and was the one who bet inside the government for bringing Ghali, after he was requested by Algeria, against the criterion of other ministers, such as the interior, Fernando Large-Marlaska.
Now, with the acquiescence of Mohamed VI and the priority assignment of Sánchez to Albares of sewing relations with Morocco, the new Foreign Minister has been weaving a new communication with his counterpart. Today it becomes public that they have spoken but they had already done it before. It is the tangible test of thaw.
The announcement that will finally meet has become just the day that has been known that a Judge of Zaragoza has called to declare González Laya, in a cause investigating the entry into Spain of Ghali, whom in order of Exteriors did not ask for the passport, when transported by an official Algerian plane. The denunciation is part of a particular., Attorney Antonio Urdiales, with family connections with Morocco, who claims to feel harmed by the diplomatic crisis between both countries that caused the arrival of the Saharawi leader. However, the links of him with Rabat and the judicial investigation he has fostered did not seem to be an obice for Spain to continue with the thaw with Morocco. All in need of knowing if this matter will also be part of the conversation that keeps albares and burita.
These words were the unequivocal sign that the storm had passed and that Rabat, after giving the piece of the previous exterior minister. Arancha González Laya, was willing to return to normal.Date Of Update: 22 September 2021, 08:59
