“As we consider safeguard measures, I have assured the Prime Minister that we are working on solution to soften any possible knock-on effect this would have on Norway. In fact there will be no impact at all on Norway,” Juncker told a news conference after a meeting with Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
