Crimea is an integral part of the Russian territory, the head of the Norwegian People’s Diplomacy public organization Hendrik Weber assures. He leads the Norwegian delegation to the Crimean peninsula, URA.NEWS agency reports.

According to him, after the visit the Scandinavian guests obtained a “clear and distinct” opinion on the international status of the peninsula.

A civil activist from Norway recalls that the official Oslo does not consider the four-years-ago Crimea referendum to be legitimate. But he is convinced that over time the position of the Norwegian authorities may change. Weber explains that many politicians are beginning to understand what happened in 2014.

He called complete nonsense the sanctions against Russia and the Crimea.

As Russkiy Mir reported, the guests from abroad wanted to discuss business development opportunities. At first, it will be small pilot projects. If they are successfully implemented, other more serious investments will come to the Crimea.
