Cameron: ‘Icesave is in the Past’

British prime minister David Cameron, who was in Iceland yesterday for the Northern Future Forum, said he believed that both countries had now put Icesave behind them and were focusing on other issues.

“Let’s look to the future rather than the past,” Cameron said when asked at a press conference yesterday afternoon about whether he would consider apologizing to Iceland for the previous government’s decision in October 2008 to invoke anti-terrorism legislation to freeze Landsbanki’s assets in the UK following the banking collapse.

The prime ministers of Iceland, Britain, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, the vice foreign minister of Lithuania and experts from the respective countries convened at the Northern Future Forum in Reykjavík yesterday to discuss creative industries and innovation in public management.
