MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Norway’s ambassador to the U.S. is visiting North Dakota this week.

Kare Aas (KOHR’-uh ahs) is in the state to get a look at the University of North Dakota’s Nordic Initiative and to take in the Norsk Hostfest Scandinavian heritage festival in Minot.

UND’s Nordic Initiative focuses on student exchange programs in medicine, business, entrepreneurship, petroleum engineering, communication and other fields of study.

The Hostfest draws about 60,000 people from around the world each year. Aas tells KXMC-TV that it’s his first Hostfest, but it won’t be his last.
