    MOROCCO ENVISAGES BOMBING AGREEMENT ON MAGHREB EUROPE Mohammed VI the revenge

    18 Jun 2017

    An event that carries within it the germs of a thirst to give the coup de grace to an Algeria that has foiled all the twisted shots, which had the objective to tarnish its image.

    The scenario is in the drawers of the Makhzen. Rabat would consider not renewing 'the agreement on the Maghreb Europe gas pipeline, transiting through Hassi R'mel (Algeria), Seville, via the Kingdom and the Strait of Gibraltar, which will have to end in 2021,' according to the Moroccan press. Realizable or not? Chimeric or realistic? What is certain is that in theory it could be a fatal blow to Algeria which faces a severe downturn in oil prices while at the same time it must renegotiate its gas contracts. This new stuffed blow is a lot more like a bluff. To increase the auctions at a time when there is gas in the Algerian-Moroccan relations. The declarations of the Moroccan Minister of Energy are in any case not settled. They remain in the vagueness while not dismissing the possibility of breaking the agreement on the Maghreb Europe gas pipeline. 'Morocco is developing two highly strategic lines, namely Jorf Lasfar and the Morocco-Nigeria gas pipeline,' Aziz Rabbah told the Moroccan daily L'economiste.
    And the agreement on the Maghreb Europe gas pipeline? 'The line between Spain and Algeria that passes through Morocco is equally important,' he replied. Can it be broken? The response of the Moroccan official is not so categorical. 'We are now launching a reflection on the gas pipeline linking Spain to Algeria because the contract will end in 2021. We are interested in launching a study to find the best vocation for this great infrastructure, Both for the national market and for the export of gas, 'said the Minister of Energy of the Kingdom. The question is on the table. It carries within itself the germs of a revengeful attitude. From a thirst to give the coup de grace to an Algeria which besides having foiled all the twisted blows, which had the objective to tarnish its image has highlighted a Moroccan diplomatic diverted.
    The staging of the false aggression of one of its diplomats by an official of the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is edifying in more ways than one.
    The Moroccan media had reported, last May, An alleged physical assault allegedly committed by a senior Algerian diplomat on a member of the Moroccan delegation on the margins of the holding in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines of the regional seminar organized by the special committee on decolonization commonly called the C24 . 'The accusations made against our diplomat are nothing more than a poor staging of a mediocre play and a repetition of the methods and scenario we have been accustomed to,' said the spokesman Of the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abdelaziz Benali Cherif.
    An affair suppressed after the convocation of the ambassador of Morocco in Algiers. The gas pipeline case, Is not yet a release of the scent of revenge that hides badly the hatred that we vow the Moroccan power that feeds the fantasy of seeing Algeria upside down. Trying to weaken it economically after failing to achieve it through lying campaigns is a purely political strategy.
    Like the giant gas pipeline project that will link Morocco to Nigeria, whose only ambition is to stifle Algeria economically. 'It will feed first the African market and then export to other European markets,' pompously announced Abderrahim El Hafidi, Secretary General of the Moroccan Ministry of Energy.
    Experts who did not hesitate to call it chimera. 'The Announcement of this new gas pipeline is largely a political strategy.
    On the one hand, it is a question of obtaining a benevolent neutrality from Nigeria in the face of the African ambitions of Morocco, whether for its entry into the ECOWAS or the Saharawi question, and to put pressure on the Algerians to Of the renegotiation of gas prices scheduled for 2020, 'said a specialist of the file who confided to the French daily newspaper Le Monde.
