Collado at meeting with Moratinos

Alcaldes C.G. y Moratinos 1 (Press release) The Mayor of Jimena, Pascual Collado, took part at the meeting held this morning by Spanish Foreign Secretary Miguel Ángel Moratinos with all the mayors of the Campo de Gibraltar prior to the minister’s historic visit to Gibraltar. They each had a turn to express the singularities of their town and their vision of relations with Gibraltar. During his turn, Collado mentioned the experience of Jimena as regards the municipality’s large British population, and that>

it is necessary for “both communities to draw closer through initiatives related to education, exchanges with Spanish universities and Gibraltar’s participation in regional sports, so that the young of both sides get to know each other.” The Mayor added, “for politicians to understand each other, it is first necessary to understand the population and their cultures” and “differences between either part should not exist.”

Received by e-mail from Peazo, whose nick sounds familiar but can’t otherwise identify: “I wonder if Mr. Colado mentioned jimenapulse. He should have, for the fantastic work you do in bringing the communities together in Jimena.”

Thank you for that, Peazo!
