NO agreement at the end of the EU treaty talks would be “devastating” for Gibraltar and surrounding cities, a group of business associations and unions have said.

Cross Frontier Group said in a statement that it would be “a huge political failure” for those involved in the process that they will have to take responsibility for.

For this reason, he urged the EU, the United Kingdom and Spain to “reach an agreement, in the form of a treaty, that develops the spirit and letter of the New Year’s Eve Agreement.”

The three powers have been unable to resolve their differences after ten rounds of talks.

Since the 2016 Brexit referendum, the Cross Frontier Group has stated that “no deal was not an option”.

Members of the group said they “gave a sigh of relief” after the government announced the New Year’s Eve Agreement.

“However, the successive delays and the little information received have caused notable discomfort among thousands of citizens and companies,” said Cross Frontier Group.

He said the “uncertainty caused by conflicting news” was “putting the citizens of our area under stress.”

The group’s spokesman said it wants an agreement for “an area of ​​shared prosperity and the dismantling of the border for citizens and property.”

They also want the treaty to be a platform on which to build better relationships.

The EU treaty could help create “a legal framework that allows the maintenance of economic, social and cultural relations between the two countries,” the statement said.

Cross Frontier Group believes this will help ‘safeguard the living and working conditions of its citizens’ on both sides of the border.

Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares said on New Year’s Day that he was “ready for any scenario” creating a hail of reproach in the area.
