On Monday, Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) said it is unacceptable for the United States to spy on Norwegian politicians.

The comment comes after media reports that Danish intelligence has allowed the United States to spy on politicians in Norway, Sweden, Germany, and France.

In a comment to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK), Solberg noted that the USA has no reason to spy on Norway.

“It is unacceptable that countries that have close allied cooperation feel the need to spy on each other or obtain information about each other,” the Prime Minister noted.

“That is why we are keen to find out as much as possible from Denmark. They have appointed a separate commission of inquiry to review this. We have asked for the information they have,” she said.

The Prime Minister said she would discuss the allegations with the United States if it turns out that they are true.
