Gi­bral­tar deal ends ob­sta­cle to Brexit ac­cord

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

The Euro­pean Union re­moved the last ma­jor ob­sta­cle to seal­ing an agree­ment on Brexit af­ter Spain said it had reached a deal Satur­day with Bri­tain over Gi­bral­tar.

British Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May, who ar­rived in Brus­sels Satur­day evening for prepara­tory talks with EU lead­ers, will then have the task of sell­ing the deal to a re­cal­ci­trant British Par­lia­ment and a na­tion still split over whether the U.K. should leave the EU on March 29 and un­der what con­di­tions.

Spain wants Gi­bral­tar’s fu­ture to be a bi­lat­eral is­sue be­tween Madrid and Lon­don, not be­tween Bri­tain and the EU.
