THE Chief Minister of Gibraltar, the Hon Fabian Picardo QC, has sent a letter of congratulation to Pedro Sánchez on being re-elected, after “a tortuous and fractious debate,” as Prime Minister of Spain.

In his letter, Mr Picardo refers to the two men’s shared desire to look beyond “the eternal issue” of sovereignty and he extended the hand of friendship on behalf of the people of Gibraltar.

He also offered his support for the promotion of “policies based on the principle of dialogue, understanding and co-operation between our respective people.”


With tripartite talks involving Britain, Gibraltar and Spain due to take place in Madrid over Brexit withdrawal shortly, the ‘friendship’ of the Spanish government is of paramount importance to the Rock.
