People in Gibraltar feel "under siege" due to the territory being the subject of diplomatic wrangling between the UK and Spanish governments, the House of Commons' Foreign Affairs Committee has said.
"The combination of direct pressure on its border and sovereign waters as well as
diplomatic pressure at the EU, UN and NATO, have resulted in a feeling in Gibraltar of
being under siege," the cross-party committee's latest report says.
The committee accuses Spain of "aggressive policies" towards Gibraltar and says the Government "has responsibilities toward Gibraltar and cannot ignore actions by Spain that are intended to make the lives of Gibraltarians difficult".
