Iceland Prime Minister Says Nation Will Adopt Euro or Other Currency

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(REYKJAVIK, Iceland) -- Iceland Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir said on Saturday that the nation will make a decision on whether or not to join the European Union and adopt the euro or drop the krona and adopt another currency, Bloomberg News reports.

Iceland began discussing the possibility of joining the EU in July 2010 and will most likely vote to decide early next year.

A Capacent Gallup poll in February revealed that around a quarter of Iceland's voters support joining the EU and a little over half oppose it.
