Gibraltar Lib Dem MEPS call on EU to publicly back Gibraltar over Grace 1 

Gibraltar's two Liberal Democrat MEPs have written to the European Commission's High Representative for Foreign Affairs, urging the EU to publicly endorse Gibraltar's decision to release the Iranian tanker formerly known as Grace 1.

In a statement, Martin Horwood, who forms part of the EU's delegation to Iran, said he is pleased to be in a position to strengthen co-operation and influence with Europe on this critical issue, adding, it is no exaggeration to say that peace in the Persian Gulf hangs in the balance.
