That comprehensive dialogue that will address Spain with the United Kingdom on a matter for years cystic is due to the “position of strength” that acquires Spain after pact of divorce, according to the interpretation of the president. Spain has managed to introduce, in annex to this text, a statement of the community institutions, which enshrines the right of veto Spanish about any advantage future for Gibraltar. With that lever, Spain will try to forge a more balanced relationship —less based on the unfair competition— with the Rock to when the expiry of the period of transition from Brexit, as of January 2021.

Various british media have pointed out that Theresa May has made concessions to Spain to accept the political statements on Gibraltar that accompany the agreement for withdrawal of United Kingdom.
In a more subtle, Sanchez recalled that, while under the Executive of Mariano Rajoy, the claims in respect of Gibraltar were just “a mere point” in the documents agreed upon, which is now enshrined is a “triple shielding”. It is true that until now all the documents of the Brexit were texts for the negotiation and that the only time to include something binding was the package of retreat, which has now been sealed in Brussels.
