Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

From an article in The Norway Post, “The Norwegian government will provide a transport aircraft to be used in the effort to move humanitarian aid to the needy in Northern Iraq, as well as NOK 50 million in monetary aid.

Norway provided NOK 60 million in humanitarian aid to the region already in June, and we now grant another NOK 50 million. And we are ready to provide more, said Foreign Minister Børge Brende at an Oslo press conference Friday afternoon.

He also said that a Norwegian Hercules military transport plane would be made available for a three month period, to be used to move humanitarian aid in the form of food, medicines and shelter to the internally displaced people in Northern Iraq.

At the press conference, Prime Minister Erna Solberg said that Norway would not be providing arms or military aid to the area.”
