From UKGov/ Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and The Rt Hon Dominic Raab MP

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will travel to Gibraltar today to meet with the Chief Minister and attend the UK-Gibraltar Joint Ministerial Council.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will today, 29 March, attend the UK-Gibraltar Joint Ministerial Council and hold bilateral talks with the Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo.

During the visit, the Foreign Secretary will reaffirm the UK’s commitment to reaching agreement on a future treaty between the UK and EU in respect of Gibraltar.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

As a valued member of the UK family, we stand side by side with Gibraltar as we enter into the forthcoming negotiations with the EU on Gibraltar’s future relationship.

We are committed to delivering a treaty which safeguards UK’s sovereignty of Gibraltar and supports the prosperity of both Gibraltar and the surrounding region.

The UK-Gibraltar Joint Ministerial Council is the highest negotiating forum for ministers to come together and discuss matters of shared importance. The Joint Ministerial Council (Gibraltar EU Negotiations) was originally formed to discuss the UK’s exit from the European Union, but has come into its own as a forum for agile discussion between the UK and Gibraltar across the range of shared interests.
