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.

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
