Norway moves diplomatic delegation from Venezuela to Colombia
Norway's decision is attributed to the rapid growth reported in Colombia's economy, as well as the "active" political reforms the Colombian Government has been implementing
"In the light of the economic and political evolution in the region, and the level of insecurity in Venezuela, the embassy to Caracas will be closed in order to reopen the embassy to Bogota," the ministry informed on the plans of the diplomatic delegation.
The sources also attributed the decision to the rapid growth reported in Colombia's economy, as well as the "active" political reforms the Colombian Government has been implementing.
Moreover, Norwegian authorities extolled their country's involvement in Colombia's peace and reconciliation process to end the South American nation's conflict. They also highlighted the presence of Norwegian humanitarian organizations in Colombia.
