Talks await UK Election Result

Tripartite talks involving Gibraltar, Britain and Spain will not be held until after the UK elections are over, Spanish press reports quoted diplomatic sources as saying.

They confirm that Jose Pons and Dominick Chilcott the British and Spanish diplomats, who have met with Chief Minister Peter Caruana in sessions under the new process UK and Spain, met last Friday on non-Gibraltar issues. They however informed Mr Caruana of their meeting in advance to establish that this was not a Gibraltar meeting.

Meanwhile the Chronicle understands that the parties have for some time been considering when Gibraltar might itself host talks under the process.
