The Moroccan government decided on Thursday, February 25, 2016 to freeze contact with European institutions, except for exchanges on the appeal related to the EU-Morocco agriculture agreement.
The cabinet meeting, held Thursday, examined relations between Morocco and the European Union, Communication Minister, Government Spokesman Mustapha El Khalfi said.
The government reiterated its refusal of the European Court of Justice’s (ECJ) ruling on the EU-Morocco agriculture agreement, he added during a press briefing following the weekly cabinet meeting.
”The government denounces the political character of this decision, its unfounded arguments, its skewed logic and conclusions that are contrary to international law and UN Security Council’s resolutions” the minister said.
Last December, ECJ’s Eighth Chamber made a ruling annulling an enhancement of the agricultural agreement signed in 2012 between Morocco and the European Union.
