Cross border traffic main irritant in UK-Spain negotiations: Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya

On Tuesday, in a statement Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said, the main burr that needs ironing out in negotiations between Britain and Spain is Gibraltar’s post-Brexit status.

London and Madrid are negotiating how to police the land border between Gibraltar and Spain, which is a British Overseas Territory on the southern tip of the Iberian peninsula; the issue was excluded from the last-minute Brexit deal between the European Union and Britain.

In an interview with RNE radio station Gonzalez Laya said, Spain has secured an exemption for about 8,500 cross-border workers from border controls even if an agreement on the free movement of workers is not reached.
