Strasbourg – It is high time that France and the European Union (EU) support Morocco in its position concerning the Sahara, underlined, on Monday, Claude Kern, Senator of Bas-Rhin, vice-president of the European Affairs Commission at the French Senate.
“Morocco is today, for France and Europe, a real bridge with Africa,” he said in a statement after a meeting he had with the consul General of Morocco in Strasbourg, Driss El Kaissi. Kern, also member of the French delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), underlined that Morocco is also a key partner of Europe in the fields of security and migration, calling on the government of his country to support the Kingdom in order to strengthen its position on the Sahara issue.
