Statement by HR/VP Federica Mogherini on the judgement of the General Court of the European Union

Morocco and the European Union have a broad-based and strong partnership anchored within the framework of the country's Advanced Status.
The EU has taken note of the judgment of the General Court of the European Union regarding the Council's Decision on the agriculture agreement between the EU and Morocco.
The European Institutions are closely examining this judgment in order to determine the various options, in particular regarding preparatory work for an appeal.
In the EU’s opinion, bilateral agreements are not called into question. The EU confirms its commitment to its partnership with Morocco, a key partner in the Southern Neighbourhood.
