LONDON | The Latest: Gibraltar open to direct talks with Spain
LONDON — The Latest on Britain’s talks to leave the European Union (all times local):
Gibraltar’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo says he is willing to discuss directly with the Spanish government their bilateral relations after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.
But Picardo warned Thursday that the sovereignty of the British territory at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula is non-negotiable.
Spain has never dropped its claim of jurisdiction over the rocky outcrop, and its government has balked at the possibility of its post-Brexit future being decided between London and EU authorities without direct Spanish involvement.
