The study trip started with a visit at the Norwegian Foreign Ministers Jonas Gahr Støre’s office. At the Parliamentary congress Mr. Støre emphasised the importance of NATO attention on the security issues of the High Norht. Mr. Støre believes that the biggest challenges in the north will be issues concerning climate, energy and security at sea.
