British Parliament calls on NATO Secretary General to cool Madrid

A group of deputies of the British Parliament sent a letter to NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, in which she asked to pay attention to "the increasingly frequent provocations of Spain against Gibraltar," reports Expert Online with reference to the Daily Express.


British Parliament calls on NATO Secretary General to cool Madrid


Deputies are not satisfied with "the constant illegal invasions of Spanish ships into the British waters of Gibraltar and the prohibition of Madrid for American ships to anchor in Gibraltar, which has been the territory of Great Britain since the beginning of the 18th century."

They are also not satisfied with the fact that “Her Majesty’s airplanes have to make a hefty detour to get to Scala, as Gibraltar is often called, and not to violate the airspace of Spain,” the newspaper writes.

Not without a reproach to Madrid, who “allowed Russian warships to refuel just 19 miles from Gibraltar”.

"It seems to us that the behavior of Spain as a member of NATO and an ally is becoming less and less reliable," the British lawmakers stressed.

It is noted that after the recent referendum held in the UK, the head of the Spanish Foreign Ministry García-Margallo said that "the brexit opens up new opportunities for Spain to regain control of Gibraltar."

“The Spanish flag over Gibraltar is now as close as ever,” he added.

In turn, British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson promised to take measures "necessary to protect Gibraltar and its inhabitants."

“The people of Gibraltar repeatedly and unanimously expressed their desire to remain under the rule of Britain. We intend to respect the wishes of the citizens of Gibraltar, ”he said at a press conference.

        It seems that the conquistadors also remembered their past sovereignty. Well done! It is all the more important for us in the context of the port used by our warships. Because of what the Stoltenberg puppet is wildly annoyed.

      Gibraltar was captured by the Naglichans 300 years ago in 1704, and in 1713, under the Utrecht Peace Treaty, Gibraltar was taken over by Great Britain. According to the Treaty of Versailles in 1783, the rock remained a British possession.It is interesting that in 1940, at the beginning of World War II, Caudillo Francisco Franco, observing armed neutrality, rejected Hitler's proposal to seize Gibraltar. In a referendum on September 10, 1967, the overwhelming majority of Gibraltars (12 against 138) voted against the transition to Spanish sovereignty. In response, the Spanish government closed the border between Spain and Gibraltar on June 44, 9, announced a complete economic blockade of British possession, cut off telegraph and telephone communications and maritime traffic, and banned Spanish citizens from working in Gibraltar. After Franco's death, these measures were softened. that the other, the southern rock does not belong to Morocco, but to Spain. Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in Africa, is located there. Its territory and population is almost three times larger than the "rock" captured by the small shavens. The enclave is separated from Morocco by the Ceut wall border.

    The British, in their manner in 1704, took advantage of the weakening of the Spanish Empire and carried out an operation to seize Gibraltar. British Admiral George Rook proclaimed Gibraltar the possession of the English monarch.
    In 1954, young Queen Elizabeth II visited Gibraltar to magnificently celebrate the 250th anniversary of its capture by the British. Franco took this as a personal insult, and the Spanish authorities immediately closed their consulate and imposed restrictions on freedom of movement between Gibraltar and Spain.
    In 1967, there was a referendum on whether Gibraltar should be Spanish or English. 12 votes to 138 were won by supporters of the preservation of Gibraltar as part of the UK. The problem is that the Utrecht Treaty of 44 does not contain any maps - it says that Britain owns the city and castle of Gibraltar, along with the port, fortifications and forts. Accordingly, both sides interpret this in their favor.


    Everything is as always - who owns the straits, that owns shipping, and he has a lot of dough in his pocket. Plus, military significance, which is difficult to overestimate. And here I understand perfectly well the Spaniards - in the middle of your country there is an enclave that not only does not pay the state treasury for owning the territory, it spits on state policy.
    I think that if Scotland leaves Britain (and there are many prerequisites) and Ireland (the IRA still exists as an organization, it simply does not conduct military operations), then Spain may well be able to take Gibraltar back.

    But in Crimea, the people just unanimously expressed their desire and voted for reunification with Russia! But official London does not accept this and has joined the anti-Russian sanctions. Britain says it "intends to respect the wishes of the Gibraltarians." If they are so correct, then why does Britain look askance at the results of the Crimean referendum?

    And so - Gibraltar is the territory of Spain illegally annexed by the UK, however, like the Maldives.
