Norwegian Decries European Racism

Norway is seeking to focus broad European attention on a rising wave of neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism throughout the continent.

“We must get to the root of these problems,” Norwegian Foreign Minister Thorvald Stoltenberg said in an address to the Danish Parliament.

He said Oslo will seek to place the issue high on the agenda of an October summit meeting of the Council of Europe, an assembly of 21 European parliamentary democracies.
