From US ambassador blasts Norway again
The US ambassador to Norway, John Doyle Ong, made headlines 18 months ago for what many interpreted as veiled threats designed to encourage more support for the war in Iraq. Now Ong (photo) has written to the Minister of Justice, criticizing the lack of bidding over a contract to supply rescue helicopters, newspaper VG reports.
Minister of Justice (and Police) Odd Einar Dorum has been told that the lack of bidding to deliver ten new rescue helicopters - which American firm Sikorsky is reportedly eager to supply - is unjust and unwise.
VG reports that Ong writes that his own business sense indicates that the government's strategy cannot serve Norwegian interests and offers to help Norway in this "delicate matter".
Dorum and the ministry would not comment on Ong's letter, and also refused to say anything about the content of their reply.
