Scottish independence: Icelandic view on referendum

The president of Iceland has given a qualified welcome to the prospect of Scotland becoming independent after the 2014 referendum.

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson said it was for Scots to decide in 2014, but said independent nations could prosper.

BBC Scotland's Isobel Fraser spoke to reporter Joe Lynam, who interviewed the president for next week's Newsnight programme.
