Brexit deal al­most done, but Spain holds out over Gi­bral­tar

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

Spain pushed Fri­day for a guar­an­tee of its say over the fu­ture of Gi­bral­tar as a con­di­tion for back­ing a di­vorce agree­ment be­tween Bri­tain and the Euro­pean Union as U.K. Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May bat­tled to win ap­proval for the deal from skep­ti­cal politi­cians and a Brexit-weary pop­u­lace. Span­ish Prime Min­is­ter Pe­dro Sanchez – who is due to join other EU lead­ers at a Brus­sels sum­mit Sun­day – tweeted that Bri­tain and Spain “re­main far away” on the is­sue and “if there are no changes, we will veto Brexit.”
