France and Morocco plan to step up their fight against terrorism, French Interior Minister Nicholas Sarkozy said on Saturday (20 May). "We have decided to step up our co-operation against terrorism and the fight against drug trafficking," Sarkozy said after a meeting with his Moroccan counterpart Chakib Benmoussa in Marrakech. The Moroccan interior minister said the joint fight against terrorism would focus on "dismantling of a certain number of cells in the region". The two ministers also signed a co-operation agreement in "technical and scientific policing". They discussed the "massive influx" of migrants to Spain's Canary Islands, and agreed to bring in operational measures agreed upon at the interior minister meeting in Nice earlier this month.
