One out of two Norwegians support the government’s plan to expand the number of US soldiers in Norway from 330 to approximately 700 soldiers, a survey shows.

In the survey, conducted by Sentio on behalf of Klassekampen, 50% responded by supporting the expansion of US marines in Norway. 36% answered no, while 14% said they don’t know.

“The majority support the US marines being able to practice in Norway.

This is positive, and it shows majority support for the security policy,”said Høyre’s Hårek Elvenes.
