Norwegian foreign minister Jonas Gahr Støre (the first Norwegian FM to have anything approaching foreign policy credentials in years) has recently "clarified" that Norway - presumably in concert with other Nordic countries - intend to "also" make demands of Israel. Specifically, he says that Norway expects Israel to:
- Cease and desist from building the "separation wall" [sic] into "Palestinian" territories
- Stop settlements on the "Palestinian" side
- Refrain from use of violence ("applies to both sides")
- Seek negotiation solutions that move the peace process forward ("applies to both sides")
Støre also thinks that the Palestinians should refrain from violence and accept Israel's right to exist, but says he has every intention of continuing the "cooperation" with Palestinian authorities.
