Morocco and Spain: The Troubled Partnership

PP: 49-74
Mohamed Boubouche,
The Moroccan-Spanish relations are described as one of the most complex, sensitive and intertwined relations compared to the Moroccan-French relations or the Moroccan-American relations, due to the geographical proximity and cultural blending. Throughout history, Moroccan-Spanish relations have not been stable and were often marked by instability. Spanish-Moroccan relations, in their current form, are only a stage in the development of relations between the two countries. The statements issued by Madrid and Rabat do not indicate the imminence of reaching a solution to end a major conflict in which security issues (immigration-drug trafficking...) were mixed through the issue of the occupied territories (Ceuta and Melilla) and positions on the issue of the Sahara, which raises questions about the extent of the impact of this tension on Distinguished economic relations between the two countries. Morocco adheres to its principled positions, refusing to play the role of the gendarmes of Spain and the European Union in the face of immigration and others, and that it is no longer that country that receives orders from above, considering that it is time to get rid of this geographical dependence.
