UNITED NATIONS (AP) — As a NATO member and neighbor of Russia, Norway’s geographical and geopolitical location has proved relevant in the context of the war in Ukraine. It’s also an elected member of the U.N. Security Council, with a few months before its term elapses. Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre told The Associated Press that Russian President Vladimir Putin has spun a false narrative. He also does not believe Russia poses a threat to Norway’s own territorial integrity, but labeled the aggression “unacceptable.” He censured Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s late arrival and early departure from Thursday’s Security Council meeting.
