"When we faced the co-called Icesave dispute in which the Governments of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, supported by all EU governments and others, demanded that the ordinary people of Iceland – fishermen, farmers, teachers, nurses – should shoulder through their taxes the debts of a failed private bank – we had to choose between the financial interests as they were presented by the established leadership of Europe and the democratic will of the Icelandic nation and decided to allow democracy to prevail."

President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson ger sin syn på Icesave-tvisten vid ett tal inför OECD-ambassadörer i Paris.
