The delegation is headed by Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi. He brings between 10-12 people.

Among them is Anas Haqqani. Until recently, he was blacklisted by the United States for links to terrorist activities, but was delisted and is now part of the Taliban political leadership in Doha, Qatar.

However, he is best known as the little brother of one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, Sirajuddin Haqqani.

The big brother is currently Minister of the Interior in Afghanistan. He previously ran the so-called Haqqani Network, which is behind some of the worst terrorist attacks in Afghanistan in the last 20 years.

Several members of the Haqqani family are blacklisted and wanted by the United States. Sirajuddin has a permanent $10 million bounty on his head.

The Haqqani Network is believed to be behind the 2008 terrorist attack on the Hotel Serena in Kabul. At least seven people were killed, including Dagbladet journalist Carsten Thomassen.

The Taliban thank Norway

Foreign Minister Muttaqi, who is leading the delegation, praised Norway’s mediating role in an audio recording broadcast on Afghan Afghan TV shortly before boarding the plane.

– I would like to thank Norway for the invitation and for sending a private plane to pick us up. We will meet the Norwegian authorities, American and European diplomats. We must also confront our own Afghans.

The foreign minister is optimistic ahead of the Taliban’s first trip to a western country.

– This is our first trip to Europe and we hope that this will open the door to good relations and contacts so that we can solve our humanitarian and economic problems.

Muttaqi says he wants the Taliban to bring Afghanistan out of international isolation.

– I am very pleased that through our foreign policy we are building good relations with the world community. Afghanistan will no longer be on a collision course with the world. We want to make our country a center of unity and economic development in the region in accordance with our Afghan and Islamic traditions.
