The Lithuanian media has lately caused some stir with stories about Lithuanian expatriates in Norway who have had their children "taken away" by childcare services. Norway's Ambassador to Lithuania Leif Arne Ulland says that his country takes children's welfare very seriously and makes no distinction between Norwegian families and those from other countries residing there. However, he adds, no child can be taken away from the family without a court ruling.
