The main purpose of the journey will be to strengthen ties between Norway and the Turkish National Assembly as well as with other Turkish authorities.

Labour’s (Ap) Parliamentary President will be joined by a delegation of four MPs: Anette Trettebergstuen and Else-May Botten (both Labour), and Progress’ (FrP) Robert Eriksson and Per Roar Bredvold.

During the last years, Norway and Turkey have been developing a close relationship and managed to cooperate successfully at a political level. Norwegian businesses have also found in Turkey an important trade partner worthy to invest in.

The Norwegian delegation will visit both Ankara and Istanbul and will meet the Turkish parliamentary president Cemil Çiçek, President Abdullah Gül, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the leader of the largest opposition party PRR, Kemal Kiliçdaroglu.

According to NATO, Turkey's involvement in a shelling by Syria two days ago led to the death of five Turkish citizens. Many others were injured. NATO has demanded Syria cease this kind of aggressive acts against an ally.

Recently appointed Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide condemned attacks on Turkey by Syria.
“Syria’s repeated shelling against Turkish territory is a clear violation of international law,” the minister said in a statement.

He sent his condolences to the families affected by Wednesday’s assault.
