The High Representative Federica Mogherini travelled to Rabat on Friday 4 March 2016, according to an official statement by the Foreign Service’s press office, “to take stock of bilateral relations between Morocco and the European Union.” 
The statement goes on to note that the visit was in relation to a 10 December 2015 decision by the EU General Court that brought into question all agricultural agreements between the EU and Morocco. In reaction to the decision, Morocco “suspended all contact with European institutions, with the exception of planned exchanges.” 
According to the statement, the High Representative’s visit aimed to “provide additional clarifications and assurances to meet Morocco’s concerns, so that contacts and cooperation can be fully restored as soon as possible.”
