Ex head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Jan Egeland was interviewed by the most serious of our Norwegian newspapers (Aftenposten) yesterday. As some of you might know, Norway is a big oil exporter and have thus profited a lot on the high oil prices that we experience these days. Egeland speaks up for a doubling of our yearly humanitarian aid donations, and states: “”I think it’s completely distasteful that we now should be sour because the gasoline price has become more expensive … We’ve never had greater reason to be generous.” For the whole interview (in english!) click HERE!
