Al Jazeera: Faroe Islands challenge EU fishing sanctions

Self-governing islands within Danish Kingdom insist they are not the “pirates of the North Atlantic”.

“We are not the pirates of the North Atlantic,” Faroese Prime Minister Kaj Leo Johannesen said.

“We have been living on fish resources the last 150 years. This is our bread, our fish in our area. The EU will not decide what we do in our waters.”
