Gibraltar, a 'marginal' item at Rajoy - Cameron meeting

Spanish Government says it isn't even sure if the subject will arise
MADRID (Agencies) Spain's new Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, is to meet his British counterpart, David Cameron, in London on February 21st. The main items on the agenda are the European Union and the economy, while the subject of Gibraltar is considered 'marginal' by a Foreign Ministry spokesperson who could not be sure that the matter would be raised at all. This despite the fact that the Foreign Minister, José Manuel García-Margallo officially requested London to again take up the bilateral (Brussels Process) talks regarding the sovereignty of the Rock. The latter, of course, was dealt with by David Lidington, Minister for Europe, who said no such talks would take place without the consent of the people of Gibraltar.
