Norway will promote new legislation to "regulate ritual circumcision," the country's health minister said.
Bent Hoie said the new legislation on non-medical circumcision of boys under 18 will be introduced before April 20, according to a report by the Norwegian daily Aftenposten.
"We will review submissions on the matter before we can decide what should be the government's position. We aim to present a bill before Easter," Hoie told Aftenposten last week. He did not say whether the regulations would introduce new restrictions.
