Office of the Prime Minister
Speech by Prime minister Erna Solberg in Jakarta, Indonesia, 14 April 2015.
The Norwegian Government has decided that the country will contribute one civilian vessel to Operation Triton in the Mediterranean. The ship will be operative in the area around 1 August, in line with needs reported by Frontex. The ship will initially be available for six months. This will be the first time for Norway to participate with a ship in an operation of this kind in the Mediterranean. If the EU decides to extend the operation’s mandate, Norway will look into how the country can further contribute.
"Since 2000, the Vaccine Alliance Gavi has helped to vaccinate 500 million children and prevent six million deaths. Despite this, 1.5 million children are still dying every year from diseases that could easily be prevented. We must therefore intensify our efforts so that even more children are vaccinated and more children survive preventable diseases," said Prime Minister Erna Solberg at Gavi’s pledging conference in Berlin today.
