Britain's Foreign Office confirmed that three-party talks to take forward the 27 October joint statement between the Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and Spanish Foreign Minister Sr Moratinos will take place at Mr. Straw's official residence at Chevening House in Kent on 8-9 December.

"In particular, these talks will consider the creation of a new forum for dialogue over Gibraltar. As the joint statement noted, this forum would provide Gibraltar with its own distinct voice, and would have an open agenda. It follows that future discussion over Gibraltar would take place through a three-sided dialogue rather than a bilateral negotiation" said the statement.

Dominick Chilcott (FCO Director Europe) will attend on behalf of the UK; Mr José Maria Pons (Director General for Europe Affairs in Madrid) and Chief Minister Peter Caruana will attend the talks on behalf of Spain and Gibraltar respectively.
