“We are aware of the situation in Ceuta, but we leave it to the governments of Spain and Morocco to comment on this issue,” said a Foreign Ministry spokesman on questions from Europa Press.
In fact, the topic would not have come up in the conversation between US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, in which the head of North American diplomacy was active, on Tuesday Rabat recognized as a “key role” in “promoting stability in the region” at.
Blinken “underscored the importance of a strong bilateral alliance between the United States and Morocco,” according to a US State Department statement that did not address any other issue besides escalating tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.
The Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not provide any new information in connection with the telephone conversation and limited itself to highlighting in its note the “key role” that Blinken personally recognized in Bourita.
The United States recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara through the mouth of its former President Donald Trump in December, a symbolic move that the current administration has shown no sign of reversal. Trump also brokered an unprecedented political deal between Israel and Morocco.
The Foreign Ministry spokesman consulted insisted that “no decision was taken”. “We are talking privately with the parties about the best way forward and have nothing new to announce,” he told Europa Press.
