Felipe said on Wednesday that he was confident Spain and Britain could work towards an acceptable arrangement over Gibraltar, a rocky enclave on the southern tip of Spain captured by Britain in 1704 and which Spain wants back.

“Gibraltar did not come up,” May’s spokeswoman said after the meeting, which was part of Felipe’s three-day state visit to Britain.
