Quote from a news article about Gibraltar:
Spain also said it was considering taking the dispute to the UN Security Council, where it could seek the support of Argentina.
A Spanish government spokesman told the BBC that although the Falkland Islands - over which Britain went to war with Argentina - and Gibraltar were different issues, there were similarities between the two disputes.
The similarity, of course, is that the populations in both territories overwhelmingly prefer the status quo, and have repeatedly voted to that fact.  Self-determination; what's that?
