Spain and UK they have saved the match ball in Gibraltar. Both have reached an agreement 'in extremis' to avoid hard Brexit there, just 12 hours before the deadline expired. This was announced this Thursday by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha González Laya.
This "principle of agreement" implies the elimination of La Verja that currently separates the British colony from The Line of the Conception (Cádiz), in addition to the application of the rules of the Schengen area.
"The citizens of Campo de Gibraltar and Gibraltarians can breathe a sigh of relief. We break down barriers to build an area of shared prosperity. The gate is being raised," Laya said.
Government sources have described this agreement as "historic" in statements to The country, and now it is waiting to be embodied in a treaty between Brussels and London, in a period of up to six months, according to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. This principle of agreement opens the door to the free movement of people, but it is not off the table that rules are included in relation to the traffic of goods and merchandise.
Laya has acknowledged during his speech to the press that they have been "six months of intense work and two blank nights" to seal this pact, which above all has been made "without prejudice to the irrevocable claims" of the sovereignty of Gibraltar from the Government of Spain.
