Minister of State for Human Rights and Relations with Parliament, Mustafá Ramid, has assured that Spain “knew that the price of underestimating Morocco was very high” in relation to the fact that the country had failed to be “good neighbors” when “Host” the Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali.
“The reception by Spain of the leader of the separatist militias of Polisario under a false identity, without taking into account the good neighborly relations that require coordination and consultation, or at least taking care to inform Morocco, is an irresponsible act and completely unacceptable.” “Ramid wrote on his Facebook profile.
The arrival of this guide in Spain could have triggered the massive arrival of migrants in the city of Ceuta, as the Moroccan government warned a week ago that receiving Ghali in Spain could have humanitarian consequences.
“What did Spain expect from Morocco when it welcomed the leader of a gang that stood up against them?” Asked the Moroccan minister and also asked: “What would Spain have lost if it had consulted Morocco about the reception of this person would have?” And “Why Spain has not announced the presence of the individual concerned with his true identity on its soil”.
It has also suggested that the Moroccan government’s failure to inform about Ghali’s arrival “could be evidence of (Spanish) awareness that the act committed was contrary to good neighborly relations”. “What if it were Morocco that committed this crime?”
Ramid complained that Spain “preferred” its “relationship with Polisario and his mentor Algeria” to its relationship with Morocco, which, as the minister has said, “has sacrificed much in the name of good neighbors”, which “should be the object of.” special attention from both neighbors. “
According to Ramid, Morocco therefore has the “full right” to inform Spain of the “extent of its suffering on behalf of this good neighborhood” and to accept “no underestimation”, so that it “revises its policy and” respects its relations with its neighbor their rights as you respect yours. “
