Iceland excluded from EU meetings

“The decision has been taken to no longer invite Iceland to meetings usually attended by candidate countries,” says Jānis Bērziņš, spokesperson for the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU).

This move is the first of the “practical adjustments to the EU Council working procedures” promised by the EU in response to a re­cent let­ter from the Icelandic Mnister for Foreign Affairs.

The letter stat­ed the gov­ern­men­t’s in­ten­tion not to con­tinue ac­ces­sion ne­go­ti­a­tions and ask­ed for Ice­land to be re­moved from the EU’s list of can­di­date coun­tries.

Bērziņš made no comment regarding when any future procedural adjustments may be expected or what form they may take.
