The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Cristina Gallach , has urgently summoned the Moroccan ambassador to Spain this Monday and has asked her for clarification on the statements of the President of the Government of Morocco , Saadedin Otmani , on the cities of Ceuta and Melilla , whose sovereignty is claimed by the Maghreb country.

In a statement from the Office of Diplomatic Information, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation , it is reported that the Secretary of State “has transferred Ambassador [Karima] Benyaich that Spain expects from all its partners respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country “.

The president of the PP, Pablo Casado , has blamed the “internal division” of the government coalition between PSOE and Podemos and the “international weakness” of the Executive for Morocco’s claim to sovereignty over Ceuta and Melilla.

The President of the Moroccan Government, Saadedin Otmani , has stated, in an interview with the Egyptian channel Acharq this weekend that after solving the conflict in Western Sahara, he will discuss with Spain the issue of the Spanish cities Ceuta and Melilla.

In addition, he stressed that the current priority of his country is to solve the conflict in Western Sahara, and given the insistent questions from the journalist who interviewed him about whether Rabat considers Ceuta and Melilla a priority issue, Otmani has confirmed it, at the same time as added that one day Rabat will open this file with Spain.
