PRESS RELEASE

High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini to visit Rabat, Morocco, on 4 March

On March 4, the High Representative/Vice-President of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, will visit Rabat, where she will meet with the Moroccan Minister for Foreign Affairs, Salaheddine Mezouar.

This visit will be an opportunity to take stock of bilateral relations between Morocco and the European Union, review the state of our partnership and discuss our common interests, not least following the judgment of the General Court of the EU, against which the European Union has appealed, concerning the agricultural agreement between the EU and Morocco.

The EU and Morocco have developed a lasting partnership over a period of many years, sealed with an Association Agreement covering our wide-ranging bilateral cooperation. This partnership is based on listening, sharing, solidarity and mutual respect between partners.
