Prime Minister Erna Solberg has said she would be open to Norway relieving pressure on EU countries by taking in more refugees.
The PM's view is not shared by Finance Minister Siv Jensen, who is also leader of the anti-immigration Progress Party.
Just under a week ago, Solberg said that Norway could help relieve the burden on countries that have taken in a large number of refugees and migrants.
"If it is such that we reach agreement that the pressure of refugees coming to other countries in Europe is reduced because other countries take more, then we must agree on a distribution mechanism. I think that is fair and we also did that when we had redistribution in 2015," she told NRK.
