Norway closes its embassy in Syria
Norwegian Embassy in Damascus will be closed until further notice due to the current security situation.
“We have decided to close the embassy in Damascus because of the security situation. A Norwegian diplomat will stay in Damascus in order to maintain contact with political actors and report on the situation in the country. The diplomat will be attached to the Danish Embassy,” said Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.
This arrangement is a continuation of the close cooperation between Nordic countries’ foreign services.
