Gibraltar at the United Nations

THIS is a very important week for the Chief Minister Fabian Picardo as on Sunday October 2, he hosted a Gibraltar Reception in Birmingham on the opening day of the Conservative Party Conference where his main thrust was to promote the position of Gibraltar from a point of view of Brexit and Spanish demands for dual sovereignty.

The following day, he flew to New York to meet up with the Deputy Chief Minister Joseph Garcia where they will address the United Nations Fourth Committee which is responsible for human rights and decolonisation.

Once again, it is expected that the Gibraltar representatives will invite members of the committee to visit Gibraltar to see for themselves the territory and ask local residents their wishes as far as the future is concerned, especially after the statement recently made at the UN by His Majesty King Felipe VI.
