Spanish Double Standard With Regard To Gibraltar Questioned

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

10 September 2002


The Iberia News service reported on Monday that the Spanish government is seeking an EU-wide agreement designed to fix present borders across the Union as permanent...with the exception of Gibraltar.

Citing increasing tensions both within and without Spain over territory and sovereignty, the news service revealed that: 'The Partido Popular is looking at campaigning within Europe to reinforce the idea of permanent territorial borders which would permanently leave the issue resolved, and allow Spain to continue with its present role within the disputed territories.'

However, it went on to add that: 'The PP's campaign will however continue with its traditional 'twist' in respect of Gibraltar, looking at a further opt out option which will allow its continued claim over Gibraltar to proceed.'

Iberia News condemned Spain's position on this issue as 'hypocritical double standards', claiming the support of the international media in this opinion. However, no specific sources were cited.
