"I'm pleased that the Americans clearly said that they changed their practices in 2014 when it comes to the monitoring of allies, and that they want to cooperate with us and others to chart what happened," Norwegian news agency NTB quoted Prime Minister Erna Solberg as saying.

"We summoned the US embassy in Oslo today to follow up on this," she added.
