Visiting Congressman highlights close links between US and Gibraltar
A US Congressman who tabled a resolution in Washington defending Gibraltar’s right to self-determination said yesterday he believed the Rock and the United States would enjoy “long lasting and enduring” commercial and military ties.
Republican George Holding was speaking during a visit to Gibraltar alongside Democrat Congresswoman Lois Frankel, a co-sponsor of the resolution.
The visit is focused on providing the two members of the House of Representatives in Washington with a close-up snapshot of current affairs in Gibraltar, focusing on politics, the economy and the military dimension.
"We have so many commonalities and one is the great spirit of entrepreneurship which is infectious here in Gibraltar," Mr Holding said.
"I do believe that Gibraltar will have a close and long-lasting, enduring relationship with the United States, not only through economic ties but through military ties, and it's an honour to be here."
