​Since June 2016, the United Kingdom Government has engaged constructively with the Government of Gibraltar and our European partners, including Spain, to address the practical implications - including border crossings - for Gibraltar arising from EU Exit. The Spanish Government, including most recently Foreign Minister Borrell, has made clear the importance of maintaining border fluidity. The Government of Gibraltar is focussed on keeping its side of the border moving quickly.
