  • Description

    Icelandic and British ministers met in London on Monday (19 June) in another attempt to reach an interim agreement in their fishery limits dispute.

    The two-day talks at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London are aimed at finding arrangements for the continuation of limited British fishing off Iceland after 1 September of this year.

    The Icelandic delegation at the talks is being led by Foreign Minister Einar Agustsson and includes Ludvik Josefsson, Fisheries and Foreign Trade Minister. The British delegates are headed by Lady Tweedsmuir, Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

    Before beginning Monday's talks, Mr. Agustsson told VISNEWS reporter Beb Weaver that he was hopeful at the prospects for the meeting.

    Iceland is planning to extend its fishery limits from 12 to 50 nautical miles from 1 September of this year. Britain maintains that this would violate international law and has taken the overall dispute to the World Court of Justice at the Hague.
