Parliamentary questions
18 April 2018
E-000154/2018
Answer given by Ms Bulc on behalf of the Commission

In December 2006, the EU and its Member States signed a Euro-Mediterranean Aviation Agreement with the Kingdom of Morocco. After the ratification process by all Member States and the consent given by the European Parliament in October 2017, the Council adopted, on 22 January 2018, a decision on the conclusion of this aviation agreement on behalf of the Union.

The agreement has now entered into force on 19 March 2018. It should, however, be noted that the agreement has been applied since 2006 and has never given rise to practical difficulties. By increasing connectivity and reducing ticket prices, it has brought significant advantages for consumers of both parties.

Western Sahara is listed by the United Nations as a non-self-governing territory. The final status of Western Sahara remains the object of a negotiation process conducted under the auspices of the United Nations, the outcome of which cannot be prejudged.

The European Union supports the efforts of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to achieve a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution that will ensure the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara through arrangements that are consistent with the principles and the purposes of the Charter of the United Nations.
