At a meeting on Tuesday with Norway’s General Counsul in Murmansk, Jon Fredriksen, Yevgeny Nikora said President Medvedev will devote his visit to Norway to discuss economical cooperation and innovation, reports the Murmansk based web-portal B-port.
This will be Dmitri Medvedev’s first visit to Norway. Last official presidential visit to Norway was in November 2002, when Vladimir Putin visited Oslo.
So far, there is now official information about where in Norway the Russian President will go during his up-coming visit.
Jens Stoltenberg was the first Norwegian Prime Minister to visit the northern Russian city of Murmansk in June 2007. Stoltenberg entered Russia in the north from Kirkenes to Murmansk, before he went to Moscow and St. Petersburg.
