King names USA as friend and closest ally

Norway's King Harald voiced support to the United States during a ceremony in the US yesterday. "USA is Norway's closest ally. Our armed forces participate in international operations side by side with the American and other allied forced. We share a common goal to help other nations to achieve piece, prosperity and security", he said. Socialist Left, which is against the monarchy and has named "US the largest threat against world peace", chose to ignore the King's comments. "He speaks for the current government", was all Oystein Djupedal would say.

The membership in NATO and relationship with USA is one of the most controversial diversions between Labour Party and Farmers Party on one side, and Socialist Left on the other.
