Date : 28 01 2014

The Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mrs. Mbarka Bouaida, summoned this morning, 28 January 2014, in the headquarters of the Ministry, the Ambassador of Algeria in Rabat, to inform him of the Kingdom of Morocco's strong disapproval regarding the expulsion, by the Algerian authorities, of more than 70 Syrian nationals, to the Moroccan territory, between Sunday 26 and Tuesday 28 January 2014.
 

While calling Algeria to fully assume its responsibilities, Morocco deeply regrets this inhuman act, especially that those Syrians are women and children who are in a situation of extreme vulnerability.

 

The Moroccan authorities had immediately provided the Syrian citizens with the required assistance, and gave them proper care, in the border area with Algeria.
