The Liberals (V) are asking the government to listen to the recommendation from NATO when it comes to buying weapons from the defense industry and sending them to Ukraine.
“We are impatient for the government to confirm that they will do as Stoltenberg asks. Ukraine needs more weapons, faster,” Liberal Party leader Guri Melby told the newspaper Klassekampen.
When NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg visited AUF on Utøya last week, he told the newspaper VG that there is a need for Norwegian authorities to sit down with the Norwegian defense industry and ask what they can produce.
VG wrote that earlier that week, Stoltenberg had received a concrete list of wishes from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj.
“Everyone understands that Norway does not have an infinite number of weapons in stock. It may be time to start producing,” Melby noted.
