Morocco-Spain: ‘The other kingdom clinging to the remains of an obsolete empire’

 Relations between Morocco and Spain are highly subjective. It's the same situation with France, but in the case of Spain, it's the other kingdom clinging to the remains of an obsolete empire - Ceuta, Melilla and a handful of islets - like an oyster to the rock of Alhucemas.

Tensions between Rabat and Madrid are more acute than ever due to the closure of borders between Morocco and the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, the hospitalisation of the Polisario’s leader near Zaragoza and the migration crisis.
