Coronavirus: The German Ambassador Praises Morocco’s Strategy

The ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Rabat, Götz Schmidt-Bremme, expressed on Tuesday in Marrakech, his appreciation of the strategy adopted by the Kingdom to cope with the spread of the new Coronavirus (Covid-19).

“I am very impressed by the Kingdom’s approach to stop the spread of Covid-19,” Schmidt-Bremme said in a statement to MAP, on the occasion of an exceptional flight from Marrakech Menara International Airport to Düsseldorf, to enable foreign travelers and Moroccans living abroad to reach their country of residence.

In addition, the German diplomat also acknowledged “the commitment of the Moroccans who are strongly engaged in this process under the enlightened leadership of King Mohammed VI”.

He highlighted the tremendous efforts made by Morocco and the policy put in place since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, noting that the best illustration is the registered figures of the pandemic which remain very low compared to other countries.

On the subject of repatriation operations, he said that from 19 March at least 13 flights had been organized with 3,000 passengers, while other flights were under way, noting that in addition to today’s flight, two other flights had been scheduled from Casablanca with 300 passengers.

According to the ambassador, the success of this large-scale operation is the result of the considerable support and close collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans living abroad, which responded quickly and positively to all the requests made in these exceptional circumstances.

On this occasion, Schmidt-Bremme praised the strategic partnership and fruitful cooperation uniting Morocco and Germany in various fields, calling for further strengthening of the relations linking the two countries, particularly in the economic field.

This exceptional flight to Düsseldorf, which carried 150 passengers, took place under better conditions and in strict compliance with the preventive measures issued by the competent authorities, with a view to stopping the spread of Covid-19.

Morocco has taken a series of measures as part of the efforts to contain the new Coronavirus and to combat its spread, including the suspension of flights to and from several countries until further notice.
