The two will discuss future common strategies to help Bolivia, focusing mainly on management of gas resources and the rights of the indigenous population. They will also talk about climate issues and matters to be discussed during the next UN meeting in Mexico this coming fall.

During his visit to Norway, Mr. Morales will also meet the Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, the President of the Norwegian Parliament Dag Terje Andersen, and will also have an audience with HM King Harald, as well as attending a lunch at the Royal Palace afterwards, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs writes in a press release.

According to Aftenposten, both Støre and Ragnhild Immerslund, Deputy Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UD) will also be discussing the recent Cochabamba cocaine trial.

On Thursday, Mr. Morales and Mr. Solheim will hold a press conference. Later, they will participate in a discussion about “Visions of Solutions to the Climate Crisis,” at the University of Oslo. The session is organized by the Norwegian Latin America Research Network.

At the end of his visit, Mr. Morales will go to Karasjok in Northern Norway, where he will meet the President of the Sami parliament, Egil Olli, as take part in an event at the Sami Parliament.

 Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere and, with the election of Mr. Morales as the first indigenous president in 2005, Norwegian and Bolivian ties have become stronger. Mr. Solheim first visited Bolivia in 2006, and then again in 2007. Also, in 2007 Norway’s commitment to better relations with Bolivia materialized with the opening a new embassy branch office in La Paz.
