This chapter focuses on efforts to fight cross–border crime. It describes the annual meeting between Spanish and British Foreign Ministers, Francisco Fernández Ordóñez and Douglas Hurd held in Madrid on 26 February 1990. The principal outcome of the talks was a decision to include Gibraltar in two existing bilateral agreements — the 1985 extradition treaty and the 1989 anti–smuggling agreement. This was the first time that Britain had extended an agreement held with Spain to cover Gibraltar. The ministers also signed a new agreement to tackle money–laundering, and Britain agreed to include Gibraltar in the Naples Convention of 1967 on mutual customs assistance.
