Commissioner in Rabat to launch negotiations for new EU-Morocco fisheries agreement

EU Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki, was in Rabat, Morocco, on 20-21 April to launch the process of negotiations for a new EU-Morocco fisheries agreement protocol.
 
"For the EU and Morocco, cooperation is not a choice: it is a must. We have to cooperate if we are to manage fish stocks effectively," Commissionner Damanaki said after her meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, adding: "I am glad to say that we started today our exploratory talks for a new fisheries agreement protocol with Morocco."
 
Describing Morocco as a key partner for the EU, the Commissioner said: "We are seeking a new agreement that, at the same time, respects environmental sustainability, is profitable for both sides and is in line with international law. I believe that today we have done a very good start and we should continue along this path."
