Morocco is one of the main countries of origin and transit for migrants to the EU. The Council granted the Commission a negotiating mandate to conclude a readmission agreement with Morocco in 2000. Now, 20 years later, this agreement has still not been finalised and adopted. Can the Commission therefore state:
what stage has been reached in the negotiations on the readmission agreement with Morocco; what the obstacles there are to the conclusion of this agreement? what concrete action it is taking to ensure that this agreement is concluded in the near future?
