Morocco has officially asked Algeria to make public the points discussed during a recent meeting between high officials from both countries and to respond to King Mohammed VI’s offer for dialogue to improve relations.

“Mediation and regional frameworks with Algeria remain fruitless,” a statement released by Morocco’s Foreign Ministry read while adding that Rabat expresses its regret to Algeria because the initiative of King Mohammed VI did not find a desired response as of yet.

Earlier this month, Morocco’s King Mohammed VI stated that he wants to establish a joint committee with Algeria to discuss outstanding disputes, including closed borders.

The king made the remarks during a speech on Tuesday on the anniversary of the Green March, which is when a mass demonstration took place in Morocco to force Spain to hand over the disputed Spanish Sahara province.
