No talks on permanent stationing in Keflavik

In light of a recent reports which state that the U.S. Navy is returning to Keflavík air base, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs wishes to clarify the following:

There are no talks taking place between Iceland and the U.S. on permanent stationing of American servicemen in Iceland. On the other hand it has been clearly evident that the European security environment has undergone great changes in recent years. With regard to these developments and as the Ministry has stated on previous occasions, there have been discussions on the possibility of increased presence of U.S. and other NATO Allies in the North Atlantic and in Iceland on the basis of our mutual defense commitments.
