Thorvald Stoltenberg presented his report on Nordic foreign and security policy cooperation at an extraordinary meeting of  Nordic foreign ministers in Oslo on 9 February 2009.

In June 2008, the Nordic foreign ministers commissioned Mr Stoltenberg to produce an independent report on how Nordic cooperation on foreign and security policy could be developed during the coming 10–15 years.

During the preparation of the report, Mr Stoltenberg has had talks with contact persons appointed by the foreign ministers, a wide range of politicians from both government and opposition parties, and a variety of experts.  

The foreign ministers, thanked Mr Stoltenberg for the report, which will now be considered more closely by each of the Nordic countries. The political directors of the various foreign ministries were given special responsibility for following up this work before the next meeting of Nordic foreign ministers in Reykjavik in May, where the the specific proposals in the report will be discussed.
