Stoltenberg met Barroso and Schulz

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg today met President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso and President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz.

 

Mr Barroso and Mr Schulz are in Oslo in connection with the award of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012. At the meeting, Mr Barroso, Mr Schulz and Mr Stoltenberg discussed Norway’s cooperation with the EU, and Mr Stoltenberg emphasised how important it is for Norway to have close contact with both the European Commission and the European Parliament.

“Norway and the EU share a common history and geographical region, and we share fundamental values relating to democracy and the rule of law. It is therefore both important and natural that Norway and the EU cooperate closely in many areas,” Mr Stoltenberg said.

Mr Stoltenberg, Mr Barroso and Mr Schulz also discussed the economic situation in Europe.

“We support the EU’s efforts to promote a sense of European solidarity and economic growth. It is very important for Norway that our most important trade partners experience economic growth,” Mr Stoltenberg said.
