Pedro Sánchez has come under attack for failing to take back control of Gibraltar, with the opposition accusing his Cabinet of wasting an opportunity thrown up by Brexit to achieve shared rule over the British enclave.
In the Spanish parliament yesterday, former Foreign Minister José Manuel García Margallo hammered new Foreign Minister Josep Borrell for failing to push for a deal based on “shared sovereignty,” “dual nationality” and Spain assuming the “foreign relations” of the rock.
His comments come two weeks after Sánchez announced Madrid and London had reached an agreement on Gibraltar that will regulate the status of of the territory during the transition period after the U.K. leaves the EU in March 2019
