Parliamentary question - E-000237/2022(ASW)Parliamentary question

Answer given by High Representative/Vice-President Borrell i Fontelles on behalf of the European Commission

The European Union has welcomed the normalisation of relations between Israel and a number of Arab countries, including Morocco.

The EU has for many years promoted the development of relations between Israel and the countries of the region. A normalisation of bilateral relations will be beneficial to the countries involved and a fundamental step for the stabilisation of the region as a whole.

Based on the new Agenda for the Mediterranean[1], the EU is exploring further regional, sub-regional or trilateral cooperation and joint initiatives between partner countries, including in light of the recent normalisation of relations between Israel and a number of Arab countries.

The European Union recognises Morocco’s potential in terms of contributing to development and stability in the region. The EU’s partnership with Morocco is solid and varied.

There is a strong joint commitment to further enhance cooperation in many areas, as foreseen in the 2019 Joint Declaration and the Euro-Moroccan partnership for Shared Prosperity[2], as well as in the new Agenda for the Mediterranean and its dedicated economic and investment plan[3].
