REF: STATE 36507 
 
(SBU) On March 15, we delivered reftel demarche and draft 
text of plurilateral request to Ministry of Foreign Affairs 
Chief Negotiator for Services in WTO Kjell Lillerud. 
Lillerud offered no immediate response but said he would 
forward the draft text to the Norwegian delegation in Geneva. 
 Norwegians would like to review the text of the draft 
request.  Norway's position on the classification of online 
gaming services under "other recreational" or under 
"audio-visual" services has not been decided.
