The Government has proposed to increase its allocation to humanitarian efforts by NOK 274 million in the revised budget. 'The additional funds will mainly go to Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and northeastern Nigeria, which are now being hit by a famine that has been described as the worst in the history of the UN', said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende visited Myanmar on 5-6 July. ‘The country is undergoing a huge process of change, after the transition from military rule to a partly civilian government. Norway will continue its broad engagement in support of the peace process and sustainable development,’ said Mr Brende.
