  ²On 25 Sep 1940, the German occupants acted on the understanding that the monarchy had 
been abolished and Haakon VII (s.a.) deposed on that day. However, Reichskommissar Josef Terboven (s.a.) attempted to provide this step with a sheen of constitutionality by falsely declaring "that the Storting had deposed the royal dynasty by a two-thirds majority." (From "Quisling: A Study in Treason", by Oddvar K. Hoidal (Norwegian University Press, Oslo 1989). 
  The style Norges rike (State of Norway) for the polity is a common expression, but becomes statutory only on 1 Feb 1942 with its appearance on the State Seal. It is cogently argued by the author of an authoritative study of the period that "by February 1 1942 Norway did not cease to be a Kingdom, however, since the Constitution of 1814 was still valid. Monarchy was temporarily suspended..."  Vidkun Quisling, in his proclamation on 1 Feb 1942, refers to the authority of King and Storting in the 1814 Constitution as being exercised by the Minister-president, but offered no clarification.

Note: By treaty the nationals of the treaty powers have equal rights to exploit mineral deposits, subject to Norwegian regulation. Although U.S., U.K., German, Dutch, and Swedish coal companies have mined in the past, the only companies still mining are Norwegian and Russian.

Territorial Disputes: Despite recent discussions, Russia and Norway dispute their maritime limits in the Barents Sea and Russia's fishing rights beyond Svalbard's territorial limits within the Svalbard Treaty zone.
