Statement by British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab on the UK-Spain deal on Gibraltar

Today, together with the Chief Minister of Gibraltar and following intensive discussions with the Spanish government, we have reached an agreement on a political framework to form the basis of a separate treaty between the Kingdom United and the EU regarding Gibraltar

We will now send it to the European Commission, in order to start negotiations on the formal treaty In the meantime, all parties are committed to mitigating the effects of the end of the transition period on Gibraltar, and in particular to ensure smooth borders, which is clearly in the best interests of people living on both sides

We remain firm in our support for Gibraltar and its sovereignty is preserved I thank Foreign Minister Laya and her team for their positive and constructive approach We have a warm and strong relationship with Spain, and we look forward to develop it in 2021
