Stops testing of Israeli subs

The Norwegian Department of Foreign Affairs (UD) will no longer allow a German shipyard to test submarines built for Israel in Norwegian harbours and coastal waters, NRK reports.

- Norway has the strictest regulations possible on the export of goods and services in the defence field. And this means that we do not export materials or services to countries where there is war, or threat of war, says Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

The German shipyard Thyssenkrupp has since 1997 rented a former naval base near Kristiansand for the purpose of testing newbuilt submarines. The testing of subs for the Israeli Nay will now have to be carried out somwhere else.
