Norway recognized the new Palestinian government just minutes after it was approved Saturday, and said it would normalize relations with the Hamas-Fatah coalition.If they're really not members of the EU, that's a bit surprising. But of course that doesn't make them any less a problem than they are. Next to Britain, they may have the worst politicians in Europe.
"Norway welcomes the formation of the Palestinian unity government," Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said in a statement, adding the coalition was "taking important steps towards complying with the international community's demands."
"Norway will thus on this basis re-establish political and economic relations with the Palestinian government," he said.
Norway is not a member of the European Union, but is a key player in Middle East peacemaking and one of the most steadfast contributors to the Palestinian Authority. Secret negotiations in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, led to a historic Israeli-Palestinian peace accord in 1993.
