Iceland is planning to formally withdraw its EU application said Icelands Prime Minister, Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson. He has also been quoted as saying that participation in EU talks isn’t valid any more.
Sputnik news reports: Iceland is expected to withdraw its application to become a member of the European Union, the Reykjavik Grapevine reported Monday, citing the country’s prime minister.
“Participating in EU talks isn’t really valid anymore. Both due to changes in the European Union and because it’s not in line with the policies of the ruling government to accept everything that the last government was willing to accept. Because of that, we’re back at square one,” Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson was cited as saying by the magazine.
Iceland’s government is now set to make a second attempt at revoking the country’s EU application. The country’s ruling coalition first decided to submit a bill to stop EU accession early last year, sparking major protests in the capital, Reykjavik.
