The number of foiled illegal immigration attempts increased twofold compared to the past years, said El Khalfi at a press briefing after the weekly cabinet meeting, noting that the number of thwarted attempts reached 65,000 over the past year against 32,000 prior to that period.

The minister noted that these operations are conducted mostly by foreigners, saying that after the debate initiated last year on the occasion of the visit of the European Commissioner to Morocco, a strong cooperation where the parties share the responsibility has become necessary so that support could match the Kingdom's efforts in this area.

"Cooperation involving countries West of the Mediterranean will be beneficial for all," said the minister, noting that Morocco is making great sacrifices using its own resources and that the figures of support are below such sacrifices.

The minister said that Morocco has adopted a comprehensive and integrated approach for migration with multiple dimensions and a human aspect, because the phenomenon of human trafficking and illegal immigration requires field work, in addition to strengthening the legal arsenal, to meet the challenges.
