The status of five American air bases in Morocco has been in dispute since Morocco gained independence from France in 1956. The United States negotiated with France and secured permission to build the air bases in Morocco in 1950. Morocco, at that time a protectorate of France, was not consulted in the negotiations. The status of the air bases constituted the major subject of Moroccan-American diplomacy in the three years since Morocco has been independent and in control of her own internal and external affairs.
