Jens Stoltenberg og José Manuel Barroso ræddu við blaðamenn í dag.

José Manuel Barroso, president of the executive of the European Union said in a news conference in Brussels today that Iceland has to find a closure on the disputes to some member states to the union before Iceland can have the so called macrofinancial help from the unions funds.

“The executive will suggest to the member states of the European Union that Iceland will have help in such a form of loans that will be an addendum to the IMF loan,” said Barroso. It will only be capable if Iceland finds a resolution to the disputes about the double edged deals about insurance for the balance of foreign savings owners in Icelandic bank accounts. “We think it is very important that full equality is guarded in these issues,” says Barroso. “The member states of the European Union are asking that the terms that have been set will be honored.” said Barroso. He is convinced that these disputes will be resolved.

Barroso said that the management of the ESB have received a request for help by mail from Geir H. Haarde October 2nd. Macrofinancial-aid from the European Unions are thought of as for the European countries that are not affiliated with the European union and have another currency than the Euro.
