Ministers from the UK and Gibraltar governments met formally as the Joint Ministerial Council for the first time in London on Wednesday, and discussions focused on the ‘Gibraltar and Brexit’ report which was submitted to the UK government by Gibraltar a few months ago.
After the meeting with Robin Walker, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, and Sir Alan Duncan, Minister of State for Europe and the Americas, Gibraltar’s chief minister Fabian Picardo described Sir Alan Duncan as a keen supporter of Gibraltar and said he is a keen ally in the Brexit process.
The Joint Ministerial Council will continue to meet regularly, and a number of inter-governmental working groups will be set up to examine specific areas in more detail.source surinenglish
