Erna Solberg called Russia "an important player on the international political arena." She clarified that the Russian-Norwegian relations are settled in many fields, including fishing and conserving fisheries resources.

Earlier Solberg stated that the information of possible meddling in US elections by Russia raised concern in Europe. However, she has noted that there is no evidence that Russia has influenced the choice of Norwegian people.

Prime Minister of Norway has underlined that anti-Russian sanctions cause economic damage to Norway, but also added that it is very important for Europe to demonstrate unanimity on this subject.
