Norway and Turkey have entered into an agreement to cooperate on the production of oil and gas in Central Asia. This was announced on Thursday, during Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik's visit to Turkey.
Norway's Statoil is already active in the region, through its engagement in gas fields in Aserbaidsjan, as well as in a pipe line which runs from Aserbajdsjan, through Georgia, to the Mediterranean.
New projects for Norwegian oil interests are also in the cards.
-It is important for Norwegian companies to have activities abroad,- and we have the expertise to offer, Bondevik says to public broadcaster NRK.
He says Norway has set certain conditions, both for security for Norwegian economic investments, as well as for improved conditions for human rights.
Earlier it was announced that Norwegian police would be engaged in the training of Turkish police.
