Morocco and the European Union (EU) note that the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) annuls the judgment of the General Court of December 10th 2015, thus giving reason to the Council of the EU, which had contested this first judgment at the request of all the Member States.

In a joint statement by the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the Foreign minister of the Kingdom of Morocco, the two sides “took note of the judgment, Wednesday, by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), on the agriculture Agreement between Morocco and the European Union.”

“Both sides confirm the vitality of this privileged partnership and intend to work actively for its development in all areas of mutual interest,” the Joint Declaration
