Nordic countries need to agree on when and how the border controls between countries should cease, says Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
Refugee crisis has led to Sweden, Norway and Denmark have tightened control over the borders, which have helped to reduce the number of refugees and migrants to the north.
– Both Norway and Finland is in many ways shielded because of the Swedish and Danish border controls. But we know that this can not go on forever,  Solberg said after a working lunch with Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä Saturday.
– If this is to be changed, then all the Nordic countries have to come to an agreement about the timing and the way it will be implemented,  Solberg says to the news agency NTB.
Relations with Russia and cooperation in the northern areas were also on the agenda during the meeting between the two prime ministers.
