Iceland's president for the past 20 years, Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, thinks that Britain leaving the EU is, in fact, good news for both Iceland and Norway.
He envisions the rise of a northern "super-triangle," with great political power.
"When Britain leaves the EU, we will see a triangle that covers a large part of the globe: Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Norway - and now the United Kingdom. One just needs to look at a globe to see it," Grimsson told Klassekampen.
