Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide (H) called in China’s ambassador to a meeting in relation to the data attack on the Norwegian parliament’s (Storting) email systems that took place in March.

“This is a serious incident that affected our most important democratic institution. 

“After a thorough review of our intelligence information, it is our assessment that the very serious data breach against the Storting was carried out from China,” Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide stated in a press release.

“Several of our allies, the EU and Microsoft, have also confirmed this. Chinese authorities must prevent such attacks from taking place. We expect China to take the matter very seriously so that similar incidents do not happen again,” Søreide warned.
