Prime Minister Erna Solberg thanks the UN member states for the confidence they have shown by giving Norway a seat in the UN Security Council.

– “We will use our experience of decades of work for peace and reconciliation to be a bridge-builder and seek solutions to the challenging conflicts that are coming to the Security Council’s table. International law and human rights will form the basis of our work. We want to work closely with all members of the Security Council and contribute to constructive cooperation,” she writes on Facebook.
– “At the same time, I would like to thank Canada and Ireland for a tough but friendly competition. We will continue the good cooperation going forward, both inside and outside the UN Security Council,” the Prime Minister continues.
