First round of talks between Spain and United Kingdom on future relations between Gibraltar and Spain and the EU
09/06/2020
Talks began this morning in Malaga between Spain and the United Kingdom on future relations between Gibraltar and Spain and the European Union against the backdrop of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU.

In this first round of talks, a delegation made up of senior officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation and of representatives from other ministerial department attended on behalf of Spain. A delegation of Foreign Office officials took part on behalf of the United Kingdom, accompanied by a representation from the authorities of Gibraltar, headed up by the Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Fabián Picardo.

The meeting was used to review issues that will guide the direction of subsequent rounds of talks between Spain and the United Kingdom that have now commenced regarding Gibraltar.

The delegations also exchanged points of view on the state of negotiations between the EU and the United Kingdom on their future relations.

The parties reached an agreement in principle on the schedule and the organisation of the subsequent rounds of talks.

The parties also broadly agreed on the definition of the elements that will form part of an eventual agreement, among which the interests of workers and of citizens in the zone are priorities.
