Informal Talks on Icesave Last Week

By Iceland Review

No formal talks on a solution to the Icesave debate have taken place between the government of Iceland, the UK and the Netherlands since the national referendum in Iceland on March 6, although the matter has been discussed informally.

Minister of Finance Steingrímur J. Sigfússon told Morgunbladid that the negotiation committees were in contact by email last week, although no conclusions on continued talks were reached by the end of the week.

“People have been in contact but that has not led to reopening talks,” Sigfússon said.

The Nordic countries have decided to disburse their loans to Iceland following the International Monetary Fund’s second review of the economic stabilization program, which was enabled through a new declaration of intent regarding Icesave.

The Icelandic government declared that they assumed the Icesave matter will be resolved “soon.”
