As Spain is told that Gibraltar’s sovereignty is not negotiable - PICARDO SEEKS SCHENGEN DEAL IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has granted permission to Chief Minister Fabian Picardo to explore potential membership of the EU’s Schengen free-travel zone for Gibraltar if he sees fit. 

“What the legal mechanism to do that is – whether it’s full membership of Schengen, associate membership of Schengen, extension of Schengen or simply treating the entry points at Gibraltar, at the port and at the airport, as Schengen entry points – that is the subject now of our final considerations in order to find a way that is agreeable, a legal framework that is agreeable to all the parties, and that doesn’t cross any of the sovereignty, jurisdiction and control red lines that each of us are bringing to the table,” said Picardo.
