OSLO, Feb 14 (Reuters) - The Norwegian crown weakened sharply on Thursday after central bank governor Oeystein Olsen said the bank was not in a hurry to raise rates and could even cut them if the crown got too strong.
At 1704 GMT, the crown traded at 7.40 to the euro, weaker from 7.35 prior to the comments.
