German Gunboat at Agadir
Morocco continued to be a source of crisis. In April, France was forced to commit substantially more forces to take control of the city of Fez. The Germans decided to challenge the increasing French dominance in Morocco by sending a gunship to a closed port, ostensibly to protect the rights of German citizens. The intervention resulted in crisis throughout Europe. The parties concerned arrived at a resolution of sorts when the Germans agreed to acknowledge the French right to establish a protectorate in Morocco in return for France ceding Germany a small area in the French Congo.
