Security policy was at the top of the list when Prime Minister Erna Solberg met US Secretary of State John Kerry. Europe must take a bigger share of the burden, said by Solberg.
Among other things they also talked about Russia and Ukraine, the Middle East and North Africa and especially the situation in Syria.
– We also had a useful exchange of views before coming NATO leadership meeting in Warsaw. From the Norwegian point of view we believe maritime security should be a high priority for NATO.
Transatlantic alignment will be a key to addressing these challenges. Europe must take a greater share of the burden and Norway takes its responsibilities seriously. Our defense budget has increased and will continue to increase significantly, said by Solberg who also promised to contribute in the allies against ISIS.
Solberg also took the opportunity to express that her thoughts are with the victims and families who have been on the attack in the Orlando nightclub, Florida.
