Norway’s foreign minister Jonas Gahr Støre deplores that the military option is prominent in the debate about what to do with the Iranian nuclear programme.

In an interview with state broadcasting NRK, Gahr Støre, says there are no military solution to the problem. A solution should be found by diplomatic means.

When asked if this refers to Republican politicians, he answers that he finds the same worrying trend in the general debate.

Gahr Støre is currently on a visit to the US, related to Norwegian oil-companies in Housten.

Gahr Støre says that if one subscribes to certain premises, the debate will enfold along a certain track, and the result is given. Gahr Støre obviously means to warn against such an outcome.
