Dialogue is the only realistic way out. Certainly not the alternative is weapons, suffering, famine and loss of human life.

The push alert «Taliban on their way to Norway by private planeLit up my phone on Saturday afternoon. A pretty absurd headline. But look at the background of the visit before you shout loudly about how horrible this is.
When NATO withdrew from Afghanistan in August last year, the terrorist organization Taliban took control of the country dramatically. After this, the conditions for people living in the country may never have been worse.
The UN estimates that half the population will be affected by famine this winter. Heile 97 percent of the population may come to live in extreme poverty by July. Millions of Afghans are on the run, girls are denied schooling, and democracy is virtually non-existent.
The situation can in a short time go from “just” being a crisis to becoming completely catastrophic.
Western countries are now taking the initiative to try to make the world more peaceful and the misery fewer. And the negotiations are taking place in Norway.
For the first time, representatives from Afghanistan’s civilian population, diplomats from the United States and Europe and thus the Taliban will meet for dialogue. The goal is to improve the horrific situation in Afghanistan. Failure to do so will result in loss of life and further unrest. No one is ignited by war and misery in Afghanistan, not even we in Norway.
No one recognizes the Taliban. Nevertheless, we are forced to enter into dialogue with those who de facto govern the country. The situation in Afghanistan as it is now cannot continue. Dialogue is the only realistic way out. Certainly not the alternative is weapons, suffering, famine and loss of human life. Then seven million kroner for a visit to Norway is a small sum to pay.
It’s about saving lives.
