LONDON (Reuters) - Issues relating to Gibraltar in Britain’s exit from the European Union are by no means resolved, a British government source said on Thursday, stressing that all 27 other EU states have to agree on the final text of the agreement.

Speaking after negotiators said they had agreed in principle to a text setting out the future relationship between Britain and the EU, the source also said significant progress had been made on the political declaration on Britain’s future EU ties.

“We have made significant progress from the outline political declaration in a number of areas,” the source said. “Gibraltar remains a significant issue ... it is clear there are issues to resolve there.”
