Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So, the Spanish are back on board after the advisers (Sherpas in the EU lingo) pulled an all-nighter, in one of the oldest EU traditions.

EU summit to go ahead as Tusk recommends Brexit deal

EU leaders in Brussels reached an agreement with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Saturday to ease Spain's concerns about Gibraltar and clearing the path for EU27 leaders to approve the Brexit Withdrawal Treaty at a summit on Sunday.

The accord between Brussels and Madrid was clinched after all-night work by advisers and phone call between Sánchez and Council President Donald Tusk, allowing Tusk to recommend Saturday afternoon that EU leaders approve the deal.

And what about Gibraltar?

The second declaration states that "after the United Kingdom leaves the Union, Gibraltar will not be included in the territorial scope of the agreements to be concluded between the Union and the United Kingdom. However, this does not preclude the possibility to have separate agreements between the Union and the United Kingdom in respect of Gibraltar."
