ABSTRACT

Morocco: Current Issues [September 20, 2007]   [open pdf - 86KB]

"The Bush Administration views Morocco as a moderate Arab regime, an ally against terrorism, and a free trade partner. King Mohammed VI retains supreme power but has taken incremental liberalizing steps. Since 9/11, Moroccan expatriates have been implicated in international terrorism, and Morocco has suffered terror attacks. Counter-terror measures may be setting back progress in human rights. Morocco's foreign policy focuses largely on Europe, particularly France and Spain, yet its ties to the United States are getting closer. This report will be updated as developments warrant. See also CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RS21464, 'Morocco-U.S. Free Trade Agreement', and CRS Report RS20962, 'Western Sahara: The United Nations Shifts Course.'"
