UK DOESN’T need free movement for European free trade, says Iceland’s foreign minister
“Iceland, because we can also do bilateral agreements, we have a free trade agreement with the first European nation and China.
“With the EU we have the EEA agreement, which three of the four EFTA countries are members of.”
The foreign minister insisted Britain can strike similar trade agreements while avoiding the EU’s free movement demands.
“If the UK would join EFTA it would be about the free trade deals around the world,” he said, adding Britain would only have to accept free movement if it signed a deal via the European Economic Area.
