Espionage did not disappear with the cold war.  PST stresses on the continuing high level of activity by foreign intelligence services in Norway.

During a press conference on Monday, PST director Benedicte Bjørnland admits that foreign spies are successful in their jobs.

- We see a worrisome situation. We reveal some of that, but we do not think that we have the full picture, says Bjørnland to TV2. 

PST-chief suggests that there are foreign spies working in the Norwegian government and they are looking for information about Norwegian technology and politics. Also Norwegian contingency plans are valuable information for other states, according to Bjørnland.

Police Security Service does not tell which country is most active in Norway, but TV2 and VG claim Russia, Iran and China are the most active countries in Norway.
