Yes! Norway is a very big player on the world stage when it comes to peace and conflict resolution… they will have had dealings with Tutu for decades…

I think you are being unfair Hester (if I read correctly your post as being sarcastic). 

Norway is not a big player in the world stage but is a small country with HUGE reputation internationally.

Fwiw, I didn’t read Hester’s post as sarcastic.

I don't read sarcasm in Hester's post. You are both essentially recognizing that little Norway does take its role with global peace and conflict resolution seriously without making those measures very public or high profile.

Fun fact. Norway gives the Peace Prize because Alfred Nobel, a Swede, did it as a goodwill gesture to Norway after Norway got it's independence from Sweden in 1905 (having been "given" to Sweden or "won" by Sweden after the Napoleonic Wars. Before that, for 400 years, basically since the Black Plague, Norway had been a territory of Denmark. Culturally, Norway felt closer to Denmark, hence having a referendum to have a monarchy and asking Denmark's second son to be their king.)

Alfred Nobel's move is one of the smoothest, coolest diplomatic moves ever.

Also, let's not forget that the first UN Secretary General hailed from Norway. The country, though relatively small in populace, does indeed have a significant role in international diplomacy, particularly within the UN. Hester's comments were not sarcastic at all, imo, but rather reflected on fact.

Seems it was part of an interview with nrk about the sami national day, their own expectation and visit to the sami people, and the rather dark chapter with the «norwegisation» of the sami people, for which both king Olav and king Harald has asked for forgivness on behalf of the norwegian state

They have much to apologize for. I have a Saami friend whose grandfather's skull was kept in the forensic museum for 150 years and was only returned after a lengthy process of protest and petition. And Sweden has done comparable thngs.

The Cp couple has cut short the family vacation abroad to celebrate the 85th birthday of King Harald. They arrive home tomorrow so Cp Haakon can take care of the duties as head of state, preumably because of the situation in Ukraine
