Spain threatens to derail Brexit deal over Gibraltar

There is a new obstacle to Britain’s smooth exit from the European Union. Spain raised the issue of Gibraltar, a tiny British territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. Madrid asserts a claim to Gibraltar and seeks to resolve its centuries-old territorial dispute with London, RISS expert Igor Pshenichnikov said. Spain insists that the draft Brexit deal, which will be signed at the EU summit on November 25, must be modified to make clear that Gibraltar's future will rely solely on talks between Madrid and London.
