|«Relations between our two countries have always been close. In 1814, the founding fathers of the new Norwegian state looked to America for inspiration, especially to the ideas embodied in your Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Our communities have evolved over the years, but the key values remain the same. Our firm belief in freedom, democracy and human rights reflects our political and historical kinship.» -- H.M. King Harald V¹ (Source)|
Norwegian Friends of America
Norwegian Friends of America (VAA) was started as an ad-hoc campaign against increasing anti-american sentiments in the Norwegian public debate. We wish to support the good bi-lateral relationship between Norway and the USA by highlighting the political and historical kinship between our two nations.

The text of our signatory campaign
Dear American friends,
I appreciate that your Founding Fathers inspired
our own Constitutional Fathers at Eidsvoll in 1814.
I appreciate that you lead the world in fighting Islamic terrorism and threatening dictators.
I'm proud of the friendship between Norway and the
USA, and I hereby wish to contribute to its strengthening.
