As Boris Johnson told the world that Gibraltar would be part of the ongoing withdrawal negotiations with the European Union, the Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha González Laya said that the Spanish stance is to ensure shared prosperity for Gibraltar and the surrounding region.

In a radio interview she declined to talk about joint sovereignty saying that this was a conversation for another day as the important thing was to resolve the day to day affairs of those in the region affected by Brexit.

She also confirmed that the Spanish Government was happy to work with Gibraltar on such issues as frontier, police co-operation and taxation but warned it was important to ensure there was no unfair competition in customs or fiscal issues.
