The Polish Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Anna Fotyga, from the European Conservatives and Reformists parliamentary group, welcomed this Wednesday on Twitter "the decision of the Moroccan authorities to readmit all unaccompanied but identified Moroccan minors who are illegally in the European Union".

Her statement comes as a reaction to the support brought by the Hungarian MEP Olivér Várhelyi, European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement. On the same crisis, the migration of unaccompanied minors, he reminded the mutual interest of the two countries, Morocco and Spain, and the bilateral partnership between Morocco and the European Union.

Those encouragements answer a statement by the ministries of the Interior and Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates that announced, Tuesday, that "His Majesty the King Mohammed VI was willing to reiterate his Very High Instructions to the ministers in charge of Interior and Foreign Affairs so that the question of unaccompanied Moroccan minors, irregularly located in some European countries, be settled definitively."
