Following Finland's decision to close all but one of its border crossing points with Russia, Norway has announced its readiness to shut down the only checkpoint on the border with Russia. Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre said this at a conference on Wednesday, tv2 reports.
The head of the Norwegian government was asked whether it was appropriate to follow the Finnish example and close the border with Russia.
"If necessary," Støre replied.
He added that Norway is closely monitoring the situation in Finland and Estonia.
