Ola Borten Moe said one of the intentions for Norwegian officials attending the environment meeting in China is to show relations with them are still strong.

There has been little or no political contact between both countries since last December following Norway’s decision to award dissident Liu Xiaobo the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

Almost nine months later, Minister Borten Moe is looking forward to the trip, despite what appears on the surface, at least, to be a freeze in trade relations.

“If possible, it [the meeting] will be positive, but itis up to Chinese authorities,” he told Dagens Næringsliv (DN).

The meeting’s main topics are expected to include carbon capture and storage methods. He hopes talks will go to plan.

“I do not wish to begin thinking of progress before it isa fact. We have indicated that we want a good relationship with China. The ball is now with Chinese authorities,” he said.
