REYKJAVIK, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- The embassy of Russia to Iceland confirmed that Iceland was not on Russia's sanction list, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service reported Friday.

Alexey V. Shadskiy, Counsellor of the Russian embassy in Iceland, confirmed Iceland was not on Russia's sanction list, but did not say why.

The Russian government on Thursday imposed a one-year ban on imports of beef, pork, poultry, fish, cheeses, fruit, vegetables and dairy products from Australia, Canada, the European Union, the United States and Norway.

Icelandic Foreign Minister Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson has said he did not know why Iceland was not on Russia's sanction list.

"It is too early to say whether we are in danger of being on that list," said Sveinsson.

"It is clear Russia took measures against some selected nations. Of course, the risk exists, but we have to wait and see how it develops," he added.
