1. (U) Norwegian MFA Security Policy and Afghan experts agree
that ISAF should have a greater role in counter narcotics.
As part of a broader discussion on Afghan issues the
Norwegians expressed support for greater ISAF involvement in
counter narcotics before poloff made demarche points. Norway
has remained silent in NATO but will consider speaking up to
urge greater ISAF counter narcotics involvement. We have
requested senior level meetings with the head of the MFA
Security Policy Section to re-emphasize the importance of the
SACEUR initiative.
