SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 19. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has stated that the reestablishment of a “normalized relationship” between the kingdom of Morocco and Spain “is good for the Canary Islands” and has stressed that this will allow, among other things, for there to be “exhaustive” control “in front of the migratory flow that arrives at the Islands.
In statements to the media, Ángel Víctor Torres indicated that yesterday, before appearing at a press conference, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares, telephoned him to inform him of the agreement between Morocco and Spain to restore diplomatic relations.
The Canarian president affirmed that this is “good news” and wanted to remember that he has always said in the Parliament of the Canary Islands that the best thing is “to have the best relations between the kingdom of Morocco and the Government of Spain”.
According to Torres, “this agreement means that economic relations are restored; that territorial integrity is also defended and that, therefore, there is no room for unilateral decisions by the kingdom of Morocco, and that there will be exhaustive control over the migratory flow, because given the current economic situation, the shortage and the increase in the price of energy, there is also the threat that we will have more migratory flow”.
