RABAT, April 17 (Xinhua) -- The Council of the European Union (EU) on Monday gave green light for the negotiation on a new deal between Morocco and the EU in the fisheries sector, Morocco's official MAP news agency reported.

The current fisheries protocol between the two sides will expire next July and the decision to reach a new deal has been approved by the 28 EU member states, said the report.

The EU decision is in line with the joint statement by Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, on Feb. 27.

The statement confirmed the commitment of both sides "to the strategic partnership between Morocco and the EU and their determination to preserve and strengthen it."

Negotiations between the two parties are expected to start soon, the same source noted.
