The European Union and Norway have discussed support for Ukraine and further pressure on Russia.

This was discussed at a meeting of European Council President Donald Tusk and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Thursday in Brussels, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"Together with Prime Minister Solberg, we discussed the conflict in Ukraine and our relations with Russia. We remain adamant in our attitude towards Russia. We know who is the victim of the conflict, and we will continue to work together to promote reforms and development of Ukraine. We also cooperate in the issue of sanctions against Russia," Tusk said.

The parties also reaffirmed their commitment to transatlantic relations and called for further strengthening of security cooperation, including relations between the EU and NATO.
