Luis Marco Aguiriano, Spanish Secretary of State for the EU, made the unbelievable claims as he defined his authorities’s issues on Brexit to a parliamentary committee in Madrid. He stated an article within the draft Brexit textual content which has led to Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez threatening his nation will reject any deal, had been added “beneath the duvet of darkness and with treachery” on the request of the British Prime Minister and behind Spain’s again. His assault got here after Theresa Could stated she had informed Mr Sanchez by cellphone on Wednesday night time British sovereignty over Gibraltar shall be protected.

Spain is demanding that the way forward for the Rock is settled by means of direct talks between London and Madrid.

The Spanish Prime Minister vowed on Tuesday that until that was clearly acknowledged within the divorce deal between Britain and the EU, his authorities must reject the draft Brexit withdrawal deal.

Madrid has vented its anger at article 184 of the draft deal, which says the EU and the UK will search to “negotiate quickly the agreements governing their future relationship” between the official day of withdrawal on 29 March 2019 and the tip of a transition interval in December 2020.”

Spain claims the article is ambiguous and needs to make sure it doesn’t apply to the way forward for Gibraltar.

Reacting to EU makes an attempt to calm Spanish nerves since Overseas Minister Josep Borrell first raised issues on Monday earlier than Mr Sanchez upped the ante by threatening to vote ’No’, Mr Aguiriano stated: “It wants clarification.

“If they are saying there’s no danger, allow them to write it in.

“This authorities has proven very clearly what its place is.

“It won’t conform to the withdrawal deal and the long run declaration on Sunday with out full clarification of this query.”
