Chief Minister and La Linea Mayor look to continuing friendship and good relations at border closure fiftieth anniversary commemoration event

The Chief Minister and the newly reinstated La Linea mayor, Juan Franco, met yesterday afternoon to close the series of events that have commemorated the fiftieth anniversary of the border closure.

Shaking hands under the monument in La Linea that plays tribute to cross border workers, both men highlighted the negative and traumatic moment in our common history that the border closure represents.
