Morocco calls halt to Algeria diplomatic ties 'unjustified'

Algiers decision due to Rabat's alleged role in recent fires

25 August, 15:46

    (ANSAmed) - RABAT, AUG 25 - Algeria's decision to break off diplomatic ties with Morocco is "utterly unjustified" and based on "false, even absurd pretexts", Morocco's foreign ministry said after Algiers' announcement on Tuesday evening.

    The Moroccan ministry said that the move was in any case "expected given the logic of the escalation seen in recent months".

    Algiers' decision came after Morocco was accused of playing a role in fires that devastated the northern part of the country and that led Algerian president Abdelmadjid Tebboune to announce that relations with Rabat would undergo changes.

    In recent days, Moroccan king Mohammed VI had claimed that "methodical attacks" were being used against his country "by some notoriously hostile countries and organizations".

    He did not say to whom he was refering.(ANSAmed).
