Alfonso DastisSPAIN’S foreign minister has said the country won’t stake a claim on the Rock in the wake of Brexit. 

Alfonso Dastis said Spain will not jeopardize a deal with the UK by attempting to reclaim the British overseas territory.

“I won’t make a deal between the EU and the UK conditional on recovering sovereignty over Gibraltar,” he told the Spanish press.

It comes after the European Council’s controversial decision to award Spain a veto on whether the Brexit deal could be applied to Gibraltar.

Dastis agrees with the idea of joint sovereignty which would see Gibraltarians obtaining British and Spanish dual nationality.
