Bilateral talks between Norway’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Børge Brende, and Minister of Trade and Industry, Monica Mæland, and Turkey’s Minister of Energy, Taner Yildiz, were held on Tuesday. Norway and Turkey signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the energy sector, paving the way for closer cooperation between the two countries. 
  
“The talks between the Norwegian and Turkish government ministers were good. Both sides expressed a keen interest in strengthening cooperation between the countries in the energy sector,” says Øistein Andresen, executive vice president of Statkraft. 

King Harald made note of this when he opened the seminar: 

Our cooperation is broad in scope, and designed to promote Turkish and Norwegian actors’ common interests. The hydropower sector is a case in point.
