(Ambassador to the US)

Icelandic Ambassador in Washington D.C.

The Embassy of Iceland in Washington D.C. opened in 1941, when the country still was occupied by US troops, and was among the first Embassies opened by Iceland.[1]

Iceland is a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) but has no standing military of its own. The United States and Iceland signed a bilateral defense agreement in 1951, which stipulated that the U.S. would make arrangements for Iceland's defense on behalf of NATO and provided for basing rights for U.S. forces in Iceland.
