Spain lets the Moroccan truckers in


AS REPORTED in Moroccan news paper Al Massae, Spanish authorities have granted a new quota of permissions to Moroccan road hauliers crossing Iberian borders.

Moroccan commercial trucks have been stuck at the port of Algeciras on the Spanish coast because they have not had authorisation to cross into Spanish territory.

The same source added that hundreds of Moroccan trucks owners were threatening to strike at the port of Tangier to prevent Spanish trucks from crossing Moroccan borders as a response to the ” treatment inflicted on them (Moroccans) by Spain.”

As a result, the Iberian government has decided to grant 5,000 authorizations to Moroccan commercial truckers so they can cross the border without issue.

Al Massae added that Spanish authorities introduced the new measures to prevent strikes threatened in Tangier which would affect Spanish business. This is, however, only a temporary solution while Spanish and Moroccan authorities look for a permanent solution.
