Facts about Gibraltar
|Administrative divisions:||none (overseas territory of the UK)|
|Area:||total: 6.5 sq km land: 6.5 sq km water: 0 sq km|
|Background:||Strategically important , Gibraltar was reluctantly ceded to Great Britain by Spain in the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht; the British garrison was formally declared a colony in 1830. In a referendum held in 1967 , Gibraltarians voted overwhelmingly to remain a British dependency. The subsequent granting of autonomy in 1969 by the UK led to Spain closing the border and severing all communication links. A series of talks were held by the UK and Spain between 1997 and 2002 on establishing temporary joint sovereignty over Gibraltar. In response to these talks , the Gibraltar Government called a referendum in late 2002 in which the majority of citizens voted overwhelmingly against any sharing of sovereignty with Spain. Since the referendum , tripartite talks on other issues have been held with Spain , the UK , and Gibraltar , and in September 2006 a three-way agreement was signed. Spain agreed to remove restrictions on air movements , to speed up customs procedures , to implement international telephone dialing , and to allow mobile roaming agreements. Britain agreed to pay increased pensions to Spaniards who had been employed in Gibraltar before the border closed. Spain will be allowed to open a cultural institute from which the Spanish flag will fly. A new noncolonial constitution came into effect in 2007 , but the UK retains responsibility for defense , foreign relations , internal security , and financial stability.|
