Sweden Opposes Morocco Fishing Treaty

Sweden has criticised the European Union’s planned fishing agreement with Morocco.

The treaty is expected to be approved by EU Agriculture and Fishing Ministers in Brussels Monday.

Sweden opposes the proposed agreement because it includes waters that belong to the Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara. Swedish Agriculture Minister Ann-Christin Nykvist says that for the treaty to meet international law, there must be guarantees that the Saharan people will also share in it.
