GibraltarBritish Overseas Territory located near the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula of Southeastern Europe overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar between the Mediterranean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean.[1] The territory shares a border with Spain to the north. Gibraltar was ceded by Spain to Great Britain in perpetuity in 1713 under the Treaty of Utrecht though Spain requests its return; the Government of the United Kingdom has stated it is committed to respecting the wishes of the Gibraltarians,[2] who strongly oppose the idea of annexation along with any proposal for shared sovereignty with Spain.[3][4]
