OSLO, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. A difficult situation which developed in the Russian-Ukrainian relations will not affect cooperation between Russia and Norway in fisheries, matters of ensuring nuclear security and environmental protection, according to Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende who spoke at the Norwegian parliament on Tuesday. Border cooperation between the two countries will continue as well, the minister said.
Since 1949 when Norway joined the North Atlantic Alliance peace has reigned and will reign on the Russian-Norwegian border. Norway will continue cooperation with Russia, the Norwegian foreign minister declared.
Norway, which is not a member of the European Union, had earlier joined EU sanctions against Russia, which was quite a sufficient measure to express Norway's solidarity with its NATO partners, the foreign minister said.
Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who has been on a visit to the Hague now to attend a nuclear security summit, declared that the only way to settle the Ukrainian crisis in a long-term perspective was to ensure the revival of the Ukrainian economy.
