Norway may help "find solutions" if Britain seeks to join EFTA -PM

OSLO, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Norway may lend support for a potential bid by Britain to rejoin the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) if so wished by London, the Norwegian Prime Minister told Reuters on Wednesday.

In Britain, supporters of a so-called “Norway plus” plan that would see Britain rejoining EFTA, of which Norway is a member, have said it could provide an alternative to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit agreement with Brussels.

Asked whether Norway would support Britain rejoining EFTA, Erna Solberg said in an interview: “If that is what they really want, we will find solutions in the future.”

“To find a good agreement is important for all European countries and I hope that we will see an orderly deal that doesn’t disrupt economic affairs in Europe,” she added. (Reporting by Lefteris Karagiannopoulos Writing by Gwladys Fouche Editing by Terje Solsvik and Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
