Spain is considering the possibility of raising the matter of Gibraltar with other nations, according to Spanish media reports.

Newspaper El Pais, quoting diplomatic sources, said the dispute may be put on the agenda by Spanish officials at the United Nation's General Assembly or the International Court of Justice at The Hague.
