The Conservative Party’s (H) Ine Eriksen Søreide is critical of the fact that the Extended Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee (DUUFK) was not adequately notified of the meetings with the Taliban in Norway.

Søreide chairs the Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee in the Storting.

“The DUUFK was not informed in advance of the meetings with the Taliban. As chair of the committee, I received a short notice from the Minister of Foreign Affairs that the meetings were to be held, but no information was given about the delegation or other arrangements,” Søreide told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

“Considering the composition of the meetings, it would be wise for the Minister of Foreign Affairs to provide the Storting with information in advance about the meetings and the assessments on which the government’s decision is based,” she added.
