President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson i BBC om sin syn på skotsk självständighet från Storbritannien.
måndag 24 december 2012
"If you take a long-term view of about 100 years or so, the history of northern Europe is that countries have become independent one after the other. ... Whether Scotland will follow that route is a decision for the Scots to take. ... But despite difficulties that we have all faced, the moral of the story of independence in the North Atlantic - from Norway, through Iceland and growing self rule in the Faroes and Greenland - is of course that the nations have fared quite well. ... Independence is not a disaster, but can be the road towards prosperity and a good society."
