Earlier this week, Danmarks Radio (DR) published information that the American intelligence service NSA, with the help of its Danish counterpart, spied on targets in several countries, including Norway, Finland and Sweden.

The espionage must have been conducted via a base in Denmark.

According to DR's sources, Saab was intercepted at the same time as the Danish state was procuring new fighter aircraft, where Saab's Gripen aircraft was one of the candidates.

Norway was also the target of the interceptions regarding the fighter aircraft.

Due to this, the Norwegian Minister of Defense Frank Bakke-Jensen (H) will now speak with the Danish Minister of Defense.

"I have taken the initiative to talk to my Danish colleague, Minister of Defense Trine Bramsen," says Bakke-Jensen in a written comment to the news agency NTB.

SVT has previously sought Minister of Defense Peter Hultqvist (S).
