The First Minister met with Mona Juul – Norway’s first female ambassador to the UK.
The First Minister met with the ambassador in her office at Parliament and they discussed ways that links could be strengthened between Scotland and Norway.
As it was the first time they had met, the First Minister and Ms Juul exchanged gifts. The First Minister gave the ambassador a quaich – a traditional Scottish drinking cup.
Ms Juul gave the First Minister a beautiful vase.
The First Minister said: “All I need now is for someone to give me some flowers!”
