Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre says Norway condemns the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi in Libya in the strongest terms.
- We condemn the attack on the US consulate in Bengazi and the killing of diplomats and ordinary civilians in the strongest terms, Foreign Minister Støre says.
- Such acts of violence are indefensible. We will raise this matter with the Libyan authorities. Under international law, the receiving state has full responsibility for the security of diplomatic and consular missions and their staff, the Norwegian Foreign Minister says.
