Britain will wait for final EU guidelines on Gibraltar: May’s spokesman
Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman said on Monday that Britain will wait until the end of the month to find out what guidelines the other members of the European Union have agreed regarding issues such as Gibraltar.
The future of Gibraltar has become the first dispute of the exit talks since May filed the formal divorce papers with the EU draft joint position saying any agreement on the British outpost on Spain’s southern tip had be agreed between Spain and Britain.
The spokesman told reporters that these are draft guidelines that were issued. We will wait and see what is agreed by the 27 (EU countries). Britain’s Brexit minister David Davis held a friendly and constructive meeting with Spain’s Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis in Madrid on Monday as part of a pre-arranged visit during which he raised the issue of Gibraltar, the spokesman added.
