According to a statement of Morocco’s king Mohammed VI office, the King and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed over phone that the two sides will review the cases of those irregularly staying in Germany, and repatriate without delay those nationals who claim refugee status on groundless basis to Morocco.

The two leaders hailed their cooperation in various fields and the positive development of the bilateral ties.
