The massive arrival of migrants in Ceuta will be the subject of debate at the next session of the European Parliament, which will discuss the situation of minors and whether the Moroccan authorities violated children’s rights during the crisis.
Specifically, the debate on Thursday 10 June will focus on Rabat’s commitment to minors and whether this is a violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
In addition, MEPs will decide on the situation with a resolution that will be voted on in the plenary of the European Parliament.
Tensions between Spain and Morocco peaked with the massive arrival of migrants in the autonomous city two weeks ago, which raised alarms in Madrid and Brussels and provoked the reaction of the municipal council, which stressed that the border with Ceuta was a European border.
Since then, the diplomatic scuffle has continued to focus on Spain’s treatment of the leader of the Polisario Front. The government’s president, Pedro Sánchez, spoiled the use of migration to answer foreign policy questions, to which the Alawite kingdom replied that the crisis had nothing to do with migration, but with the fall of Brahim Ghali.
