Received an interesting telephone call from Defence Minister Torp of the Royal Norwegian government this afternoon.
It seems the actions of our Russian friends is concerning them as well. Marshal Mannerheim agrees that we should not make any official pact with the Norwegians, but that the sharing of intelligence is an imminently sensible idea.
Their act of good faith, sending the aerial photographs of the Murmansk Harbour tallies with the information we have received from our agents in our former territory. It's not a question of if, but when. I believe, and I think off the record most people do, that we should approach Sweden sooner rather than later. Timing will be the key with regards to this.
