Together we stand stronger in the Nordic family

Statement by Nordic Foreign Ministers – 20 March 2020
 
Nordic foreign ministers wish to emphasize the value of Nordic cooperation and solidarity in view of the current challenges facing Nordic citizens caught in the corona crisis. In a videoconference today, they agreed to the following immediate actions:
 
  1. Reinforce Nordic coordination, through the corona crisis management teams in the Nordic Ministries of Foreign Affairs. This includes:
 
a.  Gathering a comprehensive overview of Nordic citizens stranded abroad and in
     need of assistance.
b.  Facilitating immediate joint Nordic action on critical cases, particularly related to
     hotspots for stranded Nordic citizens, including offering available flights to other
     Nordic citizens whenever possible.
 
  1. Continue the sharing of consular crisis responsibilities. This means that Nordic citizens can turn to another Nordic embassy for consular assistance in countries where they are not represented, whenever capacity allows. Information will be communicated on embassy websites.
