Government reaction to Hague/Margello meeting in London


Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar notes the statement made by the Foreign Secretary,Rt Hon William Hague MP and the statement made by the Spanish Foreign Minister Snr Jose Garcia Margallo after their meeting in London today.

The Government is pleased that it is recognised and accepted by all parties that only Gibraltar has the jurisdictional competence to deal with the issues that arise in respect of the on-going breaches of the Nature Protection Act in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters.

The Government continues with the process already established with the fishermen from La Linea and remains open to the fishermen from Algeciras joining the Working Group in order to avoid further dangerous confrontation at sea.

Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, said:

“The Government is ready to start the deliberations of the Working Group to do the technical and scientific exercise required to progress everyone’s understanding of the environmental issues that fishing in breach of the Nature Protection Act can cause. After the statements from both Foreign Ministers, I sincerely hope that anyone who believed they were being urged to pursue confrontation instead of sitting down to discuss issues technically with us, has now seen that it is time to move from provocation to discussion in order to identify lasting solutions in keeping with our law”.
