Joint statement by the five Nordic Foreign Ministers

We, the Foreign Ministers of the Nordic countries – Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark – met today in Oslo.

We have noted with great concern the information by our Danish colleague on the recent foiled assassination plot in Denmark by an Iranian intelligence agency. At this moment, we express our full solidarity with our Danish friends and partners.

We take the matter extremely seriously. Such activities are completely unacceptable.

We deplore any threat to Nordic security. It is important that the Nordic countries stand shoulder to shoulder, when faced with threats against our societies.
