Berlin appears ready to finalize a migration agreement with Rabat, according to German media reports this week. The Federal Government's Special Representative for Migration announced that a deal aimed at curbing irregular arrivals in Germany will soon be struck with Morocco.

«I'm happy to report that we've agreed on comprehensive cooperation with Morocco regarding migration», the representative told newspaper Der Pionier. «Through trust and partnership, we'll work together to reduce irregular migration, benefiting both countries while strengthening legal pathways into the German labor market», he added.
