In connection with the Danish EU Presidency, Norwegian Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik will visit Copenhagen on Friday 16 August 2002 for a meeting with Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. On the occasion of this visit, Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen states: ”I look forward to the meeting with my Norwegian colleague, whom I have had the pleasure to meet on several occasions – latest at the Baltic Summit in St. Petersburg in June this year. Our talks will focus on issues of relevance to the co-operation between Norway and the EU, including EEA co-operation in the light of the forthcoming EU enlargement. We will, in addition, also discuss the priorities of the Danish EU Presidency as well as NATO co-operation and the NATO Summit in Prague in November. Finally, I expect us to touch on issues such as the fight against international terrorism, the Middle East and the preparations for the World Summit on Sustainable Development.”
