Morocco: Cancellation of EU-Morocco Agricultural Agreement - European Parliament Denounces Morocco's 'Intrusive' Attitude

Brussels — The European Parliament denounced, in Brussels, the "intrusive" attitude and pressures exerted by Morocco on the European Commission following the cancellation last December by the European Union Court of Justice of the agricultural agreement between the European Union and Morocco.

In a debate organized Tuesday by EU's Foreign Affairs Commission, the Euro-MPs Javier Couso Permuy and Bodil Valero said that the attitude of Morocco which decided, recently to freeze its relations with EU, is that of a "spoiled child."

The Euro-deputies also denounced Morocco's "disrespect" for the principles and procedures on which the running of the European bodies are based.

Broaching the request of Morocco which demanded to be involved in all the procedures to appeal against the decision of the European Court of Justice, the European parliamentarians dubbed "exaggerated" this request and underlined that this privilege is reserved only for EU's member States. SPS
