Spain formally invites UK to enter into joint sovereignty negotiations on Gibraltar

ADDRESSING the United Nations 4th Committee which deals with ‘decolonisation’ matters on October 5 Spanish Ambassador Román Oyarzun Marchesi said that Britain should now enter into formal joint sovereignty negotiations over Gibraltar.

He said that if an agreement could be reached, then it would be to the benefit of both Gibraltar and the whole Campo area which would allow Gibraltar to remain within the European Union and give Gibraltarians the opportunity to obtain dual nationality.

According to the Ambassador, Gibraltarians would keep their EU rights under joint sovereignty, specifically free movement of labour and capital. He said their proposal would ‘unblock’ EU legislation on issues including aviation and the environment which continues to be a strange argument as far as other members of the EU are concerned as EU legislation is being blocked as part of a negotiating tool.
