"Sovereignty does not feed anyone, sovereignty will not give certainty to workers," he said paraphrasing the general coordinator of Podemos Andalucía and president of the parliamentary group of Adelante Andalucía, Teresa Rodríguez, who this Friday has met with him to address alternatives to the impact that the consequences of the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union, which materializes this midnight, will have on the region of Campo de Gibraltar.
In this regard, he has reiterated that sovereignty "today" is an issue that must be understood that Gibraltar "will never accept" and has called to focus "on the important things" that affect citizens and workers of area. "This is a serious moment and not to say trivialities," he said in statements to the Chain Being picked up by Europa Press.
In addition, he stressed that he does not believe that this claim is on the table of negotiations. "Spain does not seriously think that it will recover the sovereignty of Gibraltar because if someone thought they could have a project to do so they would not do it as it has been done so far. I think that no seriousness in that regard. It is an almost irrelevant thing in the modern world in which we live, "he has justified.
In any case, he has indicated that after the stage of José Manuel García-Margallo in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Spain's position on this issue has varied and currently includes "much" of what Gibraltar is saying about "seeking understanding, economic cooperation, look for things that are daily important for the people who live in this area and anyone who goes to work "there.
