Associated Press: Morocco Plays Key Role in Europe’s Security

0 101

Moroccan intelligence services “are playing a central role in Europe’s effort to uncover extremist threats”, Associated Press (AP) writes Wednesday.

“Moroccan intelligence services are playing a central role in Europe’s effort to uncover extremist threats and doubling down with their own security ahead of New Year’s festivities”, the American news agency underlines.

Several attacks that recently would have been committed in European countries, notably France, Spain and Belgium, were foiled thanks to a very important intelligence exchange between Moroccan security services and their European counterparts, notes AP, citing Abdelhak Khiame, head of Morocco’s recently created Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations.

“Morocco, unlike other countries in the region, is uniquely positioned to provide intelligence to European governments because of the large number of Moroccans and Moroccan dual-nationals in Europe”, AP says, citing Issandr El Amrani, North Africa project director at the International Crisis Group, an independent think tank.
