Ministers appear before United Nations committee in New York

Fabian Picardo and Joseph Garcia Fabian Picardo and Joseph Garcia HM Government of Gibraltar

A GIBRALTAR delegation will be appearing in front of the United Nations Committee of 24 in New York on Monday.

Chief Minister Fabian Picardo and the Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia will be travelling over the weekend in order to update the committee on the political situation of Gibraltar over the last twelve months, including the position of Gibraltar in relation to the decision taken in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

This is an annual event when the committee examines the situation with regards to the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories and often results in frustration and irritation for the Gibraltar delegates as certain members suggest that the Territory is an occupied Colony.

Whilst in New York, the politicians will take the opportunity to hold additional meetings on political and commercial issues before returning to Gibraltar on Tuesday.

The #Brexit negotiated agreement on Ulster/EU border arrangements should be identical to Gibraltar/EU arrangements; there can be no valid difference.
