Norwegian Foreign Minister visits Afghanistan

Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre is in Afghanistan, in what may be a last visit to the Norwegian troops in camp Maimana, in the northern province of Faryab.

By October the Norwegian troops in Northern Afghanistan are supposed to have closed camp and to have left Maimana.

- This is the last team in Camp Maimana, and they deserve to receive all the support they can from home, the Foreign Minister says.

- Even though the military contribution will be graduall reduced, the considerable Norwegian civilian engagement in Afghanistan will be maintained, Foreign Minister Støre says.

On Monday Støre met with the chief of the ISAF force, General John Allen. On Tuesday he visits the Norwegian troops.
