Until now, there is no official statement from the German side on the Moroccan decision that was taken on Monday to cut all ties with the Embassy of Germany in Rabat.
Morocco’s Foreign Ministry issued yesterday a statement announcing the suspension of all contact with the German embassy in Rabat because of ‘deep misunderstanding on fundamental issues of the Kingdom of Morocco’.
The Moroccan Ministry of Foreign called on in its statement all the government bodies not to interact or to do any cooperative action with the German embassy in the Moroccan capital, adding that “Any derogation from this suspension can only be done on the basis of an explicit prior agreement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Residing Abroad”.
No further details or explanation about what are the reasons behind the deep misunderstanding between Morocco and Germany provided by Morocco after that, while Germany remains silent towards the Morocco decision until this moment.
According to German media reports on Tuesday, the German foreign affairs ministry has refused to comment on this issue so far, and the embassy of Germany in Rabat has taken the same attitude.
The Moroccan media pointed out that the misunderstanding between Morocco and Germany is likely related to the Sahara issue, especially that Germany has taken several steps that opposite the Moroccan right to claim its sovereignty over Sahara.
