Push for Icesave unity in Iceland parliament

ríkisstjórn-íslandsLeaders of Iceland’s government and opposition parties are attempting to reach a united position on the Icesave issue.

Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir yesterday held a meeting with leaders of all parliamentary political parties and later told journalists that renegotiation of the entire Icesave contract with Britain and the Netherlands had not been dismissed at the meeting.

Icelandic ministers have had many conversations with counterparts in the UK and Netherlands, as well as from Iceland’s other ally nations. Sigurdardottir told reporters that the British and Dutch PMs have both expressed to her their deep disappointment with the fact that the Icesave Bill has been sent to a national referendum, Visir.is reports.
