Last quote by Erna Solberg

It is with deep grief that I received the news of Liu Xiaobo's passing. Liu Xiaobo was for decades a central voice for human rights and China's further development. It is a sad and disturbing fact that the representatives of the free world, who themselves hold democracy and human rights in high regard, are less willing to stand up for those rights for the benefit of others.feedback

Feb 18 2017 - NATO

We are using one percent of our gross (domestic) product on development aid and conflict prevention, trying to solve problems around the world that lead to conflict and lead to the need for more military expenditure. There I think the Americans could follow a little bit better on. His basic view is to be against something -- Western values and Western ideas. It is a challenge. If you can't believe what's in the media, if you can't believe what you're reading, then there will be a lot of people who have distrust for everything.feedback

Feb 18 2017 - NATO

Creating jobs and job opportunities for young people in Europe, in Africa, is the most important part: that's the part of globalization that is important. We have to also be competitive, we have to make sure that we can create new jobs all around the world, because if large parts of our population don't have any hope for the future, and especially if young people don't have any hope for the future, they will be targets for extremists. That's the job of all political leaders.feedback

Jan 20 2017 - NATO

Jan 05 2017

I fear a very hard Brexit but I hope we will find a better solution.feedback

Nov 21 2016

Well I thought it (the Brexit vote ) might give even a bigger spurt than it has. I think one of the reasons is now everyone is a bit anxious about what will happen afterwards, and maybe the insecurity of what is happening in Britain is calming down a lot of those who think it's easy to leave.feedback

Nov 21 2016

It just started in my holidays when it became a craze and everyone else was playing it. Every Pokestop is usually a building or a sculpture so you can see the cities in a new way, because you will see the small things on the side of a wall, you will see art in a new way, you experience things a little differently. I think it is funny that people don't understand that politicians do relax in the same way as other people do.feedback

Nov 21 2016

We had good talks with Russia on a diplomatic basis, I think they knew this was a security area for them. They have three fences before anyone reaches the Norwegian border on the Russian side, so I think to curb migrants from using this area was important for them too.feedback

Nov 21 2016 - Homosexuality

It is part of our normal educational system that you are discussing why people are fleeing from some countries, what is the convention, what is the responsibilities we have, this is all part of the school curriculum in Norway. There is also a clear view that if you move and get refuge, you have to live by Norwegian standards, you can't come and think you live in your home country when it comes to women's rights, not to be puzzled if you see two men kiss on the street, because there are gay people in our countries and it is normal, it's part of our system….feedback

Nov 21 2016

There are too low numbers of migrant women working in Norway, we know that some reasons are they have a lot of children, so that is work in itself. But sometimes it is also because they make some demands that make it more difficult for them to get a job, and sometimes it is because their husbands don't like to see them get too involved in the Norwegian society, because then they get a taste of the freedom of women in our society, so there is also some type of patriarchy in this.feedback

Nov 21 2016

I do no think it is a complex issue that if you are going to come to our country and you have to work to sustain a living, you cannot say no to jobs like working in a restaurant where they will serve pork or alcohol. You cannot expect that the Norwegian society will pay you benefits if you are refusing to work for religious reasons….feedback

Nov 21 2016 - Refugees

We are one of those countries that are resettling the most refugees: 3,100 people are being taken out by the UNHCR quotas to come to Norway. We have done this for a stable long period, so even if we have a low number this year and a large number last year we are in fact participating a lot in this humanitarian crisis.feedback

Nov 21 2016 - Ukraine Crisis

We don't feel there is a tension on the same level in the north as we have seen in the Baltic sea for example. But we are firm on the fact that when Russia has been breaking international law, the situation in Ukraine, we are supporting the Ukrainian people, but at the same time in the northern part we are trying to have a good open relationship with the Russians.feedback

Nov 21 2016

I am not worried about that. We have a good relationship with Russia on a lot of issues. It is part of what we need to make sure that our allied countries are coming to our country to learn how to do warfare in a winter situation and to work with our different troops….feedback

Nov 21 2016

So much of the discussion on Brexit was about the four freedoms. I said I don't think they will like it if they have the Norwegian type of model. I think it is very good for us, it gives us an economic connection that gives us the possibility both to sell our products and our services, but… also the migration to Norway for some years from other countries has been quite welcome, because we needed the manpower.feedback

If you want freedom of trade and services, people are moving with the services. It might be possible to have an arrangement where you can access parts of that market, but can you have it all? I think it's going to be difficult especially on the services side which Britain is big on. It's a big country when delivering services. But that's up to the Brits to decide what they want and of course the negotiation with the EU.feedback
