Approval of the mandate to negotiate the EU’s future relationship with the UK

​The Government of Spain is satisfied with today’s approval in the General Affairs Council of the mandate to negotiate the future relationship of the EU with the UK.

25/02/2020
The Government of Spain is satisfied with today’s approval in the General Affairs Council of the mandate to negotiate the future relationship of the EU with the UK. Once more, there was a unanimous decision by the 27 Member States in the face of the important new period that is opening up. The new mandate is sufficiently solid, balanced and wide-ranging to provide the necessary margin for the negotiator Michel Barnier and his team to achieve the desired objectives. 

The Government of Spain will defend the interests of Spain and the EU in these negotiations with the aim of ensuring that they lead to a profound and ambitious partnership with the UK, to the benefit of European citizens and businesses. 

Finally, Spain insists on the importance of guaranteeing the effective application of the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement with regard to citizens’ rights.
