Faroese authorities do not have sufficient access to confidential foreign policy information.

Foreign minister Poul Michelsen has been critical of the Danish government for withholding sensitive foreign policy information, making it difficult for Faroese authorities to make informed decisions.

When numerous EU countries, including Denmark, recently expelled Russian diplomats in a co-ordinated response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy, Faroese authorities decided not to act on the matter.

Michelsen said at the time that he had received no information on the matter from the Danish authorities. This is about to change now, he said today after meeting with his Danish counterpart, Anders Samuelsen.

“We agree that there is a suitable method,” said Michelsen.

“We will try to establish an agreement on how to share information regarding matters of national security so that our government receives confidential information via an official council.”

The Danish foreign minister said he is willing to cooperate with Faroese authorities to find some safe and effective ways of sharing sensitive information.
