The actions of Britain and the Netherlands, which have been supported by the EU for some time, have raised questions in the minds of many Icelanders: “What kind of is the EU anyhow?” Ólafur Ragnar said in an interview, according to Businessweek.

According to Businessweek, last July the European Union urged Iceland to resolve its dispute with Britain and the Netherlands.
