The German Head of State underlined that his country “considers the autonomy plan presented in 2007 as a serious and credible effort by Morocco and as a good basis to reach an agreement” to the regional dispute over the Sahara. “My country and I are very grateful to You for Your active commitment to the peace process in Libya,” said the German President in his message to HM the King. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad said in a statement that it appreciates the positive announcements and constructive positions taken recently by the new German federal government, adding that these announcements allow to consider a revival of bilateral cooperation and the return to normal work of diplomatic representations of the two countries in Rabat and Berlin.
