The negotiators of the European Union and the United Kingdom to define Gibraltar’s relationship with the rest of the member states will meet again this Thursday in Brussels to continue discussions at the highest political level.

The vice president of the European Commission in charge of negotiation, Maros Sefcovic, the British Foreign Minister, David Cameron, as well as the head of Spanish diplomacy, José Manuel Albares, and the chief minister of Gibraltar, Fabián Picardo, will meet at the meeting. .

The meeting will try to “continue the discussions” in “the same format” that took place on April 12, when Sefcovic, Cameron, Albares and Picardo met in the community capital to unravel the negotiations, after two and a half years of talks and 18 negotiating rounds without definitive progress.

The objective of Minister Albares in the second meeting is to “advance the main lines” of the agreement that aims to bring “prosperity, confidence, legal security and stability to the citizens of the entire Campo de Gibraltar.”

In the joint statement from Sefcovic and Cameron after the April meeting, both noted “significant” progress in the talks and agreement on the guidelines that include provisions “on the airport, goods and mobility.”
