Morocco Rejects Unilateral Process of Catalonia Independence, Expresses Attachment to Spain's Sovereignty, National Unity, Territorial Integrity

Morocco, faithful as it has always been to respect for the principles of international law, rejects the unilateral process of the independence of Catalonia, and expresses its attachment to the sovereignty, national unity and the territorial integrity of Spain, said a statement by the ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The unilateral decision, announced yesterday, irresponsible and unsustainable, is a source of instability and division not only in Spain but throughout its European neighborhood.

The Kingdom of Morocco is confident in the ability of the Spanish government to wisely manage this situation with a view to preserving the constitutional order, and to act in the supreme interest of the Spanish Nation and the European Continent, the statement added.

Therefore, the Kingdom of Morocco does not recognize this unilateral process which runs counter to international legality.
