“As I explained at Viðskiptaþingi (The Iceland Chamber of Commerce Conference, held last week) it is very strange, even unnatural, to be in talks with the European Union, working on fulfilling their demands, and giving the EU promises about this and that, signing a contract and then fighting against it,” he said.
