Talks Begin between Taliban and Civil Activists in Oslo

Kabul – The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that dialogues between the Taliban delegation and a bunch of Afghan civil society activists have begun behind closed doors, focusing on human rights.

According to a Norwegian Foreign Ministry newsletter, a Taliban delegation led by Amir Khan Muttaqi will hold talks with many women and some civil society activists at the Soria Moria hotel on the outskirts of Oslo today (Sunday, January 23).

The Norwegian Foreign Ministry added that on Monday, the Taliban will meet with representatives of the United States, France, Britain, Germany, Italy, and the European Union. According to the agenda of the Ministry, Tuesday is dedicated to bilateral talks between the Taliban delegation and Norwegian officials.

However, the talks, which begin on Monday, are the Taliban’s first meeting with Western diplomats in Europe.

Earlier, Norwegian Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt stressed that the talks do not mean recognizing the Taliban.

Meanwhile, Norway is the place to the Nobel Peace Prize, and the country in the past has been involved in peace talks between the parties involved in a number of countries, including Venezuela, Colombia, the Philippines, Israel, and Palestine.
