Withdrawal Agreement Gibraltar Protocol

October 16th, 2021

In the meantime, planning continues in the event that the United Kingdom and Gibraltar leave the European Union without this agreement. This triggered Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, which sets out the procedure for the withdrawal of a Member State from the Union and introduces a two-year countdown to withdrawal. The UK has launched formal exit negotiations by formally notifying the European Council of its intention to leave the EU. On 18 October 2018, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro S├ínchez announced that he had reached an agreement with the United Kingdom, declared the Gibraltar Protocol “resolved” and further stated that the Spanish government would have no objection to the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, as Gibraltar is one of the British Overseas Territories and currently within the EU. [28] [29] Any dispute spain has or may have over Gibraltar`s sovereignty no longer has an impact on a future trade agreement between the UK and the EU. [29] In November, the European Union and the United Kingdom concluded the terms of an agreement on the orderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. Gibraltar was part of that agreement. The Withdrawal Agreement provides for a transition period until the end of 2020, which also includes Gibraltar. As regards the political declaration on the future relationship between the EU and the UK, it will be replaced by an international agreement following the UK`s withdrawal from the EU. Until an agreement is reached, the declaration is therefore a political document with no binding legal effects that will guide the future relationship between the EU and the UK and can serve as a basis for a future agreement.

Unlike the Withdrawal Agreement, the declaration does not refer to Gibraltar and does not clarify Article 184 as requested by Spain. In fact, Spain threatened to veto the agreement and declaration if the article was not amended or deleted. Although the article was not amended or deleted, Spain agreed to its two texts. The UK Government of Gibraltar has published all relevant documents on this subject and on this portal you will find all relevant documents, from the Withdrawal Agreement to the Protocols, Mou`s, Technical Notes and a number of other relevant documents, statements and press releases.. .
