Newsline: Norway to strengthen mission in India, to shut down embassy in Kazakhstan

Norway will in 2016 close embassies in Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Zambia and Zimbabwe as part of plans to strengthen its presence in India. “Next year, some changes will be made to Norway’s diplomatic presence abroad – its embassies in Astana, Sofia, Lusaka and Harare will close and contact with the countries where embassies are to close will be maintained through other channels,” the Norwegian foreign affairs ministry said in a statement. Oslo said it will, this year, open a new consulate general in Mumbai in India. “The structure of the foreign Service, and the location, size, tasks and priorities of the missions abroad must be constantly be assessed,” Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende was quoted as saying.
