Morocan officials and government repeatedly reacted against Algeria’s hostility against Morocco and its territorial integrity.
Moroccan officials suggested that the progress in Morocco country was the reason behind Algeria’s obsession.
Algeria backs Polisario’s independence claims. The government of Abdelmadjid Tebboune continues to back, arm, and train Polisario members.
The Algerian government also makes attempts to interfere in Morocco’s domestic affairs. In addition to its hostility against Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara, Algeria also criticized the country’s decision to adopt a bill legalizing the use of cannabis for medical use.
Some officials in Algeria also said that the maghreb Union should not include Morocco.
In February, leader of Algeria’s Movement of Society for Peace party (MSPà Abderazak Makr called for excluding Morocco from the Maghreb Union project.
"It is imperative to exclude Morocco from the AMU, since it has brought the Zionist enemy [Israel] to our borders and we no longer trust them," Makr said at a press conference in February.
