The Progress Party’s (FRP) parliamentary group wants Norway to request a consultation meeting with NATO in connection with the computer attack on the Norwegian parliament (Storting).
The party’s parliamentary group has put forward a resolution related to the computer attack.
The resolution is called “Stop the attack on democracy.”
“The Progress Party is very concerned that the country’s most important democratic institution has been exposed to a computer attack, which the government believes Russia is behind. Russia has previously been behind computer attacks against Norwegian oil companies in 2015, the German parliament in 2015, and the Democrats’ headquarters in the United States in 2016,” the resolution stated.
The party’s National Assembly is now asking the government to take the initiative and request a meeting with NATO as soon as possible to discuss how to deal with the increasing use of computer attacks against member countries.
