The Icelandic representative took note of the statement made by the Commission and underlined that it was the responsibility of all four coastal states (European Union, Faroe Islands, Iceland and Norway) to reach an agreement on the comprehensive management of mackerel stock and to demonstrate the necessary flexibility. Furthermore, Iceland reiterated its readiness to return to the negotiating table and to contribute to finding a solution to this important issue.
In the meeting, Norway underlined the importance of finalising the negotiations as soon as possible. The lack of an agreement could lead to substantial overfishing.
