The government parties and cooperation parties Left and KrF agree with the Labor Party and the Centre on an incremental asylum agreement, Nettavisen reports.
First and foremost it is agreed upon 18 concrete and immediate measures to limit the arrival of people without a right to protection.
It is also asserted in the agreement that the political talks will continue on integration measures and measures to meet the municipalities' situation regarding the reception and settlement of asylum seekers.
The Progress Party's parliamentary leader Harald Tom Nesvik believes the party has gained support for an asylum policy they have fought to get for 30 years. But he says that much work remains.
- The Progress Party is very pleased with the proposals. There are several steps that the party has fought to implement for nearly 30 years. It is important that Norway does not emerges as a place that is particularly attractive and lucrative to go to as an asylum seeker, said Nesvik.
- When the measures are implemented, the sum of it means that Norway gets Europe's strictest immigration policies, says Nesvik.
