Locals negative to American base near Trondheim, Norway


In a poll conducted by Sentio for the Norwegian Left Socialist Party (SV), 51 percent of the inhabitants in Trøndelag County say ‘no’ to establishing Værnes (Trondheim) as a main base for American marine soldiers in Europe.

Only 32 percent of the respondents are positive, while 17 percent remain undecided, according to Norwegian daily Klassekampen and VG Direkte.

The proposal includes doubling the number of soldiers on the base.

The Russian Embassy in Oslo earlier this summer used its Facebook to warn Norway that the decision to prolongue the permission for US soldiers to stay and train at Værnes would increase tension and destabilise the High North.
