    Erik Solheim, the Norwegian Minister of Development, has in this capacity pointed out to the Malawi government that its treatment of gay and lesbian persons affects its international image, which can in turn affect international aid to the country.

    I'm happy he has pointed out this element, especially as Norwegian attitudes toward gay and lesbian persons are inclusive and supporting regimes that persecute gay and lesbian persons may prove unpopular and therefore unsustainable from a Norwegian political perspective.
