NARCO ANALYSIS: Morocco, Southern Morocco, & Germany

By Geoff D. Porter

Many, many (many!) years ago when I was studying in Fes, I had an argument with a friend in the quad at Université Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah. My friend was upset with something I had done.

And he said, “المهم, c’est le geste!” The important thing is the gesture.

On 1 March 2021, a letter signed by Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita leaked on social media platforms, messaging apps, and local Moroccan media. The letter urged the government to suspend diplomatic contact with the German Embassy in Rabat as well as with consulates in Casa and Agadir.
