Norwegian FM on Brexit: 'Our aim is to keep the Single Market intact'
Issued on: Modified:
Norway wants to keep a good relationship with the UK after Brexit – but without compromising the Single Market. So says Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide in an interview with FRANCE 24. She also told Europe Editor Catherine Nicholson that Norway remains committed to EU-led sanctions on Russia, despite Oslo’s close economic ties with Moscow.
Meanwhile, on NATO, Norway's foreign minister says she believes the United States is not likely to pull out of the transatlantic military alliance - despite rumours to that effect, as well as harsh criticism of NATO allies from US President Donald Trump.
