Bruselas aprueba el mandato para negociar con Londres el derribo de la Verja...

Brussels approves the mandate to negotiate with London the demolition of the Frontier at Gibraltar. (Direct translation, so it does not mean the actual demolition of the frontier, but rather the frontier controls etc.)

"The Rock will have a special status, but will not be part of Schengen and Spain will be responsible for the control of the port and the airport.

It has taken much longer than expected due to the "complexity" of the matter, but in the end Brussels assumes the agreement reached by Spain and the United Kingdom last New Year's Eve to tear down the Gate of Gibraltar. The European Commission has adopted on Tuesday the mandate to negotiate with London the status of the Rock in the EU after Brexit, which aims to eliminate controls on people and goods on the land border between Spain and Gibraltar."
