Norway may be Europe's biggest oil exporter, but its prime minister is less concerned about tumbling energy prices than security issues around terrorism and Russia.
"I think most governments are more concerned about terrorism, security issues. We can handle oil prices going up and down, but what we can't handle are the security issues," Erna Solberg, Prime Minister of Norway, told CNBC on Friday.
Her comments came after the death of Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the king of Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter. News of his death saw Brent and light crude oil prices rise more than 1 percent on Friday, which analysts attributed to speculation based on uncertainty regarding Saudi's future oil policy.
