Norway has resumed high-level talks with Russia on trade and economic cooperation that were broken off after Moscow annexed Crimea in 2014, according to Reuters.

”This is the first time Norway and Russia hold bilateral meetings at the ministerial level since 2014,” the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries said in a statement on Monday, November 28, Reuters reported.

Industry Minister Monica Maeland and Oil Minister Tord Lien held separate meetings in Oslo with Russia`s Natural Resources Minister Sergei Donskoi.
