Morocco and pakistan have strengthened their cooperation in the military field, by conducting joint naval exercises, a few months ago, while exchanging delegation visits from time to time to strengthen their bilateral partnership, of which the military component is an essential component.

One of the strengths Pakistan can offer is its experience in the military industry. The country is ready to share its expertise in this area with Morocco, which it considers as an emerging power in Africa capable of providing investment opportunities for its businessmen.

it should be recalled here that a military delegation, chaired by Marshal Arshad Malik, visited Morocco in 2016, during the "Marrakech Air Show ", where Pakistani officials had expressed their willingness to share their know-how with Morocco regarding the manufacture of fighter planes.

Islamabad adopts a moderate position, or even more favorable to Morocco, on the question of the Sahara, "we do not. have never recognized the Polisario ", recalls the ambassador, who calls for the building of a solid partnership on the economic level, beneficial for both countries.

In late 2016, scientists aboard the U.K. research ship James Cook arrived 500 kilometers off the coast of northwest Africa, seeking two treasures joined by a curse.

Another untold yet important reason underlying this decision is the open race between Spain and Morocco to control seabed mineral resources, especially the precious Tropic Seamount. This seamount is 1,000 meters Below sea level, south of the Canary Islands and off the coast of the southern provinces of the Moroccan Kingdom. It has been discovered by a joint Spanish scientific mission in the past decade.

It is a strategic target for both Rabat and Madrid due to its mineral wealth. Results of a study conducted by the British-Spanish mission in 2016 concluded that the seamount may contain enough cobalt to make batteries for 277 million electric cars, as well as a large amount of tellurium, which is an element used in solar panels.
He has calculated that the 2,670 tonnes of tellurium on this single seamount represents one-twelfth of the world's total supply.
Dr Bram Murton, the leader of the expedition, has come up with a hypothetical estimate that if the entire deposit could be extracted and used to make solar panels, it could meet 65% of the UK's electricity demand.

In March, Morocco decided to suspend all contact with Germany’s embassy in Rabat. A few months later, the North African country recalled its ambassador from Germany, emphasizing that Berlin had consistently undermined Morocco’s interests, particularly on the question of the conflict over Western Sahara.

Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita appeared to mention Morocco’s displeasure with Germany’s unclear stance on the Sahara conflict when he reiterated the Moroccan government’s new policy with foreign partners: clarity and reciprocity on all sensitive issues for Rabat.


In March, Morocco’s Foreign Ministry announced the suspension of all contact with Germany’s embassy in Rabat. The North African country then recalled its ambassador from Germany in May, justifying its move by recounting how Berlin had consistently undermined Moroccan interests.

Seems like a diplomatic victory for morocco. After Morocco cut all their contact with the germans, and when the germans undermined the moroccan territorial integrity. Today Germany came out with a new statement with a new stance on moroccan sahara.🇲🇦🇲🇦 The German Foreign Ministry released a communique Monday, December 13, 2021, in which it affirmed that the Moroccan Autonomy Plan is an “important contribution” to an end to the Sahara conflic

The cooperation council of the Gulf countries bringing together: Saudi Arabia , Bahrain , the United Arab Emirates , Kuwait , Oman , and Qatar reiterates its support for Morocco's sovereignty over the Sahara.

The League of Arab States sent a memorandum to all its partners in the Arab countries, recommending them to adopt a unified map in all demonstrations, attached to a picture of the map of the Arab countries, which includes the full map of Morocco.

This mail was distributed a few days before the Arab summit that will be held in Algeria..

The United Nations do not recognize the sovereignty of Morocco over the Western Sahara Republic. Until the Western Sahara regains its full independence, Morocco is a colonial invader in the Western Sahara, no more.

The recognition of Morocco's sovereignty of UAE, KSA, Bahrein over the Western Sahara means nothing.

Why doesn't the EU recognize Morocco's regime over the Western Sahara ?
Because Europe recognizes people's right for Auto-determination and freedom, while the Arab regimes are dictatorships in general, and support neither Democracy nor Freedom in the World.

United nations is not a criteria for us. UN only serve the power of the big countries. Have you ever heard UN talk about the algerian island’s or the moroccan occupied ceuta and melila? NO! Offcourse the recognition by the muslim arab states matter because this is the affair, and land of the muslims, not the europeans! You gonna tell me that EU countries care about the wellfare of north africa? In fact they do everything to harm us, and slow down our progress.

Yeah I know what you stand for. Dictators such as MBZ (UAE) and MBS (KSA) who go killing innocent civilians in Yemen and Libya. What about your king Mohamed 6 who is hiring Israeli militias for killing Sahrawi Muslims.

Stop using Islam for your expansionist agendas.

No. Morocco is a sovereign state that act alone. Morocco in fact pulled out of yemen when we saw that the humanitarian situation was not good. In Libya we support the GNA with turkey. So my point is that we have our own foreign policy, and we dont agree with everything the gulf countries do. But in the end its the arab world, and the muslim world. Its no israeli millitia or soldier on moroccan soil. Only moroccan soldiers that protect their homeland against small seperatist.

Morocco has officially ended the duties of its ambassadors assigned to Iran and Algeria.

Morocco severed relations with Iran in May 2018, with the country saying it had obtained hard evidence that the Iranian embassy in Algeria was facilitating logistic links between the separatist Polisario Front in Western Sahara and the Iran-backed Hezbollah militant group

While Iran denied Morocco’s accusations, the Moroccan government said it had documents and satellite images proving that the Iranian proxy had been providing the Polisario Front with military training and support. Naser bourita moroccan minister of foreign affairs mentioned the file that have been sent to tehran.

The file included details and “proven and precise facts: dates of visits by senior officers of Hezbollah in Algeria, dates and venues of meetings with Polisario officials and a list of names of agents involved in these contacts,” Bourita said.

Egypt Says it Does Not Recognize Polisario​


Egypt does not establish any relationship with the Polisario Front and does not wish to see its position interpreted or questioned, the Egyptian diplomat said, stressing his country’s support for Morocco’s territorial integrity. The Algerian regime feared further diplomatic isolation as the League’s adoption of an undivided Moroccan map suggested a pro-Morocco position on the Western Sahara question.

Wow! This is actually shocking news that egypt have finally made a statement supporting the moroccan sahara! For several decades egypt have supported algeria, and the polisario millitia in the moroccan sahara. Egypt have even been at war against morocco in sahara when they helped algeria during the sandwar in 1963. Moroccco and egypt have always been rivals in north africa, and they have different views in libya, and syria for instance.

What we have to accept that in pretty much all Muslim majority states the western world is working to divide/destabilise them. Every minority group within a Muslim majority state is being incited by north america/europe to revolt against the state.

Morocco warns of Iranian ambitions in the African continent and accuses Tehran of spreading Shiite doctrine

Morocco warned of what it considered Iranian ambitions in the African continent, accusing Tehran of seeking to enter West Africa to spread Shiite doctrine.
Moroccan warnings came from Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita.

The head of Moroccan diplomacy stressed that "the spiritual security of Moroccans and Africa is among the priorities to counter Iranian ambitions on the continent."

Bourita indicated that Iran is trying to enter and expand in West Africa to spread the Shiite sect.

The Federal Research Agency, affiliated to the US Congress, revealed the existing relations between Iran and the Polisario Front, especially with regard to the supply of weapons and the spread of Shiite ideology in the Maghreb and North Africa.
