"The Royal Initiative on Migration Management is an example to follow and a reference throughout the African continent," Spain's Secretary of State for Migration Affairs Consuelo Rumi told MAP on the sidelines of this meeting held in camera.

Co-chaired on the Moroccan side by Khalid Zerouali, Wali-director of migration and border surveillance at the Ministry of the Interior, and on the Spanish side by Consuelo Rumi, in the presence of Spanish Secretary of State for Internal Affairs Ana Botella, this meeting deals with issues relating to migration in its legal and illegal dimensions.

Rumi noted that Morocco is making huge efforts for a rational, solidarity-based and humanitarian management of this scourge, whether it concerns border control, fighting human trafficking networks or ​​migrant integration.

"Our approach consists of reminding our European partners that Spain is an integral part of Europe and that Morocco is a major player and a strategic partner for the continent in terms of managing migratory inflows," she explained.

"This means that Spain will spare no effort to highlight the model of migration inflows management that Morocco is developing," she said, stressing the need to work for further strengthening coordination in this area.

During this meeting, both sides emphasized the importance of exemplary bilateral relations in this area, stressing the need for joint action to further reinforce this partnership which is currently a model to follow accross the region.
