Azerbaijan is closing its embassy in Stockholm, sources at the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry told Azeri Daily.
Note that the activities of this embassy covers three countries - Sweden, Norway and Finland.
The same sources at the Foreign Ministry commented on yesterday’s decision by the Norwegian Foreign Ministry to close its embassy in Baku. This decision was explained by the low level of diplomatic relations between Baku and Oslo.
Baku’s decision to close its diplomatic mission in the Scandinavian countries is likely to be a reciprocal step.
Earlier, Norway decided to close the embassy in Azerbaijan. The embassy in Turkey will be responsible for relations between the two countries. The consulate general of Norway will be opened in Baku.
