  • Description

    As a rupture of diplomatic relations between Britain and Iceland appeared inevitable, the recent naval activity, which has strained the situation, was brought to the United Nations on Monday (October 1st).

    Iceland's Foreign Minister Einar Agustsson stood firm on his government's policy of imposing a 50-mile fishing limit. He charged that British naval vessels were ignoring international rules of navigation.

    Britain's U.N. Ambassador Donald Maitland in turn denied the charges and insisted that his country's navy had every right to be in the area.

    The apparently unbreakable deadlock was eased when Britain later agreed to withdraw its Naval frigates and tugs to permit further negotiation on the issue between the two countries.
