On Saturday, former Army Chief Robert Mood told NRK that it would be easy to hit Norwegian oil, gas and defense installations with drones, and that players are likely to plan attacks against Norwegian oil facilities in the future.

In an interview with the channel, Justice Minister Jøran Kallmyr downgrades the security threat. He says that Norwegian facilities are secured and that security checks are constantly being worked on. At the same time, several security measures are being considered.

We must constantly assess our security and what measures we must take. We also need to consider the possibility of being able to have flight ban zones and take active measures so that drones cannot enter these areas, he told the channel.

He adds that when large drones with load capacity become generalized, it will be natural to have a method so that they can be identified quickly.
