The Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, announced in a statement published 6th May 2021, that Morocco has recalled its Ambassador to Berlin for consultations.
Following is the full text of the Statement of the Ministry:
“The Federal Republic of Germany exacerbated hostile acts that are detrimental to the higher interests of the Kingdom of Morocco.
Germany has distanced itself from the spirit of constructive solution with a destructive attitude on the issue of the Moroccan Sahara. Its antagonistic activism, following the US Presidential Proclamation recognizing Morocco’s sovereignty over its Sahara, is a serious act that remains unexplained so far.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that German authorities act with complicity towards an individual formerly convicted of acts of terror, by disclosing sensitive information communicated by the Moroccan security services to their German counterparts.
In addition, Germany exhibits a continued determination to counter Morocco’s regional influence, particularly on the Libyan issue, by attempting to improperly exclude the Kingdom from a number of regional meetings devoted to resolving this issue such as the one held in Berlin.
For all these reasons and due to this constant and unacceptable hostility, the Kingdom of Morocco has decided to recall the Ambassador of His Majesty the King to Berlin for consultation”.
