BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has traveled to Rabat along with 11 ministers before a meeting with Moroccan government officials. It’s part of the European country’s strategy to improve historically complex relations with its neighbor across the Strait of Gibraltar. The north African country is an important partner with the European Union in fighting extremism and aiding the bloc’s irregular migration policies. Sánchez flew to Morocco on Wednesday and attended a forum of business leaders from both countries in Rabat. He will sit down on Thursday with Moroccan Prime Minister Aziz Akhannouch.
