Sweden shaking up its diplomatic network[edit]

Sweden is to close its embassies in Bulgaria, Ireland, Luxembourg, Senegal, Slovakia and Slovenia. It will open embassies in Albania, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Georgia, Kosovo, Liberia, Mali, Moldova and Rwanda [1]. - Canadian Bobby (talk) 19:12, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

The embassy in Tbilisi is already there [2], even though there were only one or two Swedes working there last year. Närking (talk) 20:24, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
All of the "new" embassies technically already exist in the shape of cooperation section offices, so the "10 new embassies"-part of the government's reshuffle is basically just political strategizing. I'm really surprised to see Sweden close such a relative important embassy as Dublin arguing that bilateral relations can be maintained through EU channels. Is this the beginning of a new trend? Also, I was under the impression that EU countries are committed to maintain embassies in other member nation's capitals, although this condition may be waived under certain circumstances.Sir Tanx (talk) 22:56, 21 January 2010 (UTC)


Cyprus, Georgia, and Armenia[edit]

Cyprus is NOT part of Asia nor the Middle East. It is a part of Europe and the European Union. With a Greek-Cypriot population of 80%, majority Greek Orothox religion and Greek language there is NOTHING Middle Eastern about this island nation. Please refrain from placing it in Middle East category as it is NOT Middle Eastern. Same goes for Georgia and Armenia. Both are technically part of Europe as they lie north of the Caucus Mountain range. Anything south is considered part of Asia. Georgia is a possible candidate for EU Membership and Armenia has expressed interest in joing the organization within the next decade. Please refrain from adding these two former Soviet Republics with overall Christian populations to the Middle East. If you have something to discuss, do so on this page.

With regards to the Turkish Republic of Nortern Cyprus, no nation on earth recognizes that country except Turkey. Turkey realizes that it's recognition of this country will affect its chances of joining the European Union. --XLR8TION (talk) 20:46, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
