Morocco is working on new legislation enabling Moroccan women to pass nationality to their foreign spouses, said family minister Bassima Hakkaoui.

“Borders should never deprive people from enjoying nationality rights,” Hakkaoui said in a recent statement to the press on the sidelines of a visit to UN Women in New York.
