The Government of Spain has “categorically” condemned the attempt to place the Saharawi flag on the premises of the Moroccan consulate in Valencia “violating the inviolability, integrity and dignity of the consular headquarters, according to a statement from the Foreign Ministry.
For its part, the Generalitat Valenciana has issued a statement condemning “the acts carried out this Sunday in the rally called in front of the Consulate General of Morocco in Valencia by some people who have accessed the mast of the building in order to try withdraw the Moroccan flag, thereby violating the inviolability, integrity and dignity of the consular headquarters. ”
The regional secretary for the EU and External Relations of the Generalitat, Joan Calabuig, deeply regretted this type of act: “It is an act contrary to the law, it contravenes the Vienna Conventions, and directly affects the inviolability and dignity of the consular headquarters “.
