Gibraltar not yet a 'Talks' venue - Madrid

Madrid does not believe that the conditions exist at present for Gibraltar to host a session of the tri-partite talks currently in process between Gibraltar, Spain and Britain.

According to Spanish press reports at the weekend Spain feels there should be progress before such an eventuality and it says that there are still discussions as to exactly when and where the next talks, due to be held in UK, will be held.

Chief Minister Peter Caruana, is quoted as saying that he hopes Gibraltar will be accepted as a venue by Spain but that it might be too soon at present. He says it is recognised by all three that Gibraltar should host talks at some stage.

The third round could be hosted by Gibraltar in another EU venue.
