Iceland prime minister will not meet Mike Pence during his visit

The prime minister of Iceland will not have time to meet Vice President Mike Pence during his upcoming visit to the Nordic nation, but she insists it is not a snub of America’s second in command.

Katrin Jakobsdottir announced she will opt to keep “prior commitments” instead of meeting with Mr Pence when he visits in early September, and will instead attend a trade union conference in Sweden.
