No Extra Measures in Face of Terror Warning

Published måndag 1 november 2004 kl 14.11
Nordic Prime Ministers press conference this morning at the Nordic meeting in Stockholm

Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson said the country would not raise its security standing after the United States issued a warning to U.S citizens in the Nordic and Baltic states to be extra vigilant after receiving unspecific ”threat information” on the eve of the US presidential election.

Norway shut its embassy in Latvian capital Riga just two days after Latvian police increased security at key embassies and installations due to a threat from ”Muslim extremists”, without specifically mentioning al-Qaeda.

Meeting in Stockholm, Nordic prime ministers said they took such worries seriously, but would not be taking any extra measures in the light of this warning that are not already in place.

The Nordics have so far felt free of any threat from militants linked to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden - although both Denmark and Norway have been mentioned in earlier audio taped warnings linked to Bin Laden’s group.
