Who is Upset about Moroccan-American Relations?

The visit of US Assistant Secretary of State Michel Sison to the Kingdom of Morocco confirmed the importance that the United States attaches to the Kingdom of Morocco as a traditional and historical ally and partner.
The US official’s statement included many aspects of cooperation between the two friendly countries, as it underlined the extent of the United States appreciation for the role played by King Mohammed VI in achieving peace and security in North Africa and the Arab world.
The US diplomat also confirmed that Morocco hosts at least 21 offices of various United Nations agencies, which confirms the Kingdom’s primary role as a regional leader and its commitment to multilateral diplomacy.
On the other hand, Ms. Michelle Sison highlighted the extent of President Biden’s administration’s full appreciation of the Kingdom’s contributions to United Nations peacekeeping missions worldwide.
The American official expressed her pleasure in being in Morocco, which, she said, is one of the closest and oldest allies of the United States.
Mrs. Sison also welcomed the positive and fruitful discussions she had with Mr. Nasser Bourita, which dealt, among other things, with the commitment of Morocco and the United States to maintaining peace and security in the world, reiterating the United States support for the autonomy plan as a serious and realistic solution to the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.

The Moroccan-American friendship dates back to the establishment of the United States of America when Morocco was the first country to recognize the independence of the United States of America, and the Moroccan-American diplomatic relations are the longest in the history of American foreign relations. In the city of Tangiers, Morocco, there is the building of the oldest diplomatic representation of America abroad.

Mrs. Sison’s visit to Morocco also confirms that President Biden’s administration, like other representatives and members of the US Senate, has a lot of appreciation and respect for the roles played by Morocco under the leadership of King Mohammed VI and his continuous efforts to improve the lives of African peoples and create job opportunities in their countries of origin to reduce the phenomenon of illegal immigration.
The US official’s visit to the Kingdom of Morocco coincides with a state of coldness and decline in Moroccan-French relations due to the ambiguous positions of the Elysée and the policies of seizing opportunities pursued by France by nurturing division among the peoples of the African continent.
At a time when Washington relies on the principle of equality, partnership, and shared interests with Morocco, Paris clings to the illusion of superiority and supremacy in complete disregard for the sovereignty of nations and peoples that were, during the French colonial period, a victim of French expansionism and ambitions.
While Washington emphasizes the value and importance of the autonomy proposal in the Moroccan Sahara as a solution to this artificial conflict, we find Paris’ position more ambiguous, mercenary, and more biased towards the Algerian military regime (covert and overt), which is the sole sponsor of the Polisario group, suspected of terrorism.

The warmth of Moroccan-American relations is not a spur of the moment but rather a logical continuation of a friendship that extends for centuries, which certainly annoys the traditional colonial powers, led by France, which wants to monopolize the North African region and cut off any direct American involvement in the region.

On more than one occasion, the Biden administration stressed the need to remain calm and prevent any escalation that could lead the region to tragic consequences. In contrast, Paris is still panting after arms deals and fueling tension between the governments and peoples of the Maghreb.
Moreover, while all the annual reports issued by the US State Department confirm the great efforts made by Morocco to preserve its people and protect its economic rights and constitutional gains, we find France (through the European portal) the first to promote baseless charges against Morocco and the first to attack the sovereignty of its judicial system.
Morocco’s choice of parity, equality, and clarity in positions is not an impossible demand, except for those whose positions are superior and ambiguous.
Who is disturbed by the warmth and quality of Moroccan-American relations?
