Gibraltar’s chief minister hopes Spain’s King Felipe will herald new era of friendship

CHIEF Minister Fabian Picardo is hopeful that a change of monarch in Spain will herald a new era of respect between the two nations.

He offered a hand of friendship to the new King Felipe VI during a speech in the US last week.

“This new Head of State must know that we seek only peace, understanding and co-operation.

“Let us never fall for the negative, destructive force of futile and purile nationalism which feeds no-one but the dinosaurs who prefer to re-run the long lost battles of yesterday.”
