Icelandic citizens in Britain and British citizens in Iceland will keep their residence rights after Brexit, even in the case of no deal with the European Union, the Icelandic Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

The deal between Britain and Iceland, not a member of the EU but part of the single market as a member of the wider European Economic Area (EEA), comes one day after fellow EEA-member Norway announced a similar agreement.
