A major landmark situated on the southern coast of Spain, the iconic Rock of Gibraltar was ceded to Great Britain "in perpetuity" under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, and has since been a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations. And now, with the current realities of a Europe divided by the British exit from the EU, Gibraltar faces the "existential threat" of being left out of any transition deal made between Britain and the European Union. According to sources within the Spanish government, the UK has yet to make a proposal to negotiators on the status of the territory following Britain's exit, which is troubling for the population of approximately 30,000. While the territory has been British for over three centuries, it voted overwhelmingly to stay in the European Union, with 96% of voters backing Remain. And even though an overwhelming majority of Gibraltans want to remain governed by Britain, Spain has yet to fully abandon its hope of regaining at least some control over the territory.
