Carol van Voorst for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d). (C/NF) Ambassador presented reftel points to Gretar Mar Sigurdsson, Permanent Secretary of State at the Icelandic Ministry for Foreign Affairs, on December 13. Sigurdsson agreed that an international approach based on the Ahtisaari plan presented the only viable option for a status solution for Kosovo at this point. He said that Iceland was adopting a wait and see policy for the moment but would eventually follow the rest of Europe in recognizing an independent Kosovo. Iceland would be neither the first nor the last country to do so. "In any event, we will be ahead of Norway," Sigurdsson allowed in an aside. van Voorst
