Iceland has withdrawn the application for EU membership, according to the country's government.

Icelanders decided to apply for EU membership in a referendum held in 2009, while the country was hit hard by the financial crisis. The application was submitted in 2010.

Two years ago the then newly elected Icelandic government declared that negotiations with the EU would only proceed if there was majority support for it in a new referendum.

It has not been held, although EU supporters in the Icelandic parliament has worked for it.

Last year it became clear that there was consensus in the Icelandic coalition government to drop the EU application without holding a new referendum, and it was decided that a proposal should be presented.

On Thursday Secretary Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson announced that the government has informed the Latvian Presidency of the EU and the European Commission that they withdraw the application for EU membership.
