Norwegian Minister Backs Israeli Boycott

The Norwegian Finance Minister is backing a boycott on Israeli goods in Norway:

Ms Halvorsen voiced support for a campaign of solidarity with the Palestinians, due to be launched by her Socialist Left party this month.

“It is a long time since I bought any Israeli products,” she told Norway’s Dagbladet newspaper.

Norway’s foreign ministry said such a boycott was not government policy.

 

Ms Halvorsen insisted she was expressing her party’s view and not that of the government. She would not front the campaign, she added.
