Norwegian prime minister Thorbjorn Jagland admitted in a radio interview yesterday that he had contacts with the Soviet KGB in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He was a top official in the country’s Labor Party at that time. Newspapers in Norway are apparently not suggesting that Jagland’s actions were illegal, but the disclosures come less than a month before national elections and are an embarrassment for the prime minister and the Labor Party.
