NICOSIA - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark has decided to close the Embassy in Nicosia as of August 1, 2014, it was announced on the diplomatic mission’s website on Saturday.
“Denmark has launched a reform of the Danish Foreign Service implying an adjustment of the network of Danish Missions abroad. The reform means that there will be changes to the Danish presence in more than 25 countries. In this connection, a number of Missions will close for budgetary reasons,” it said.
“The reform implies that Denmark unfortunately must close the Embassy in Nicosia as of 1 August 2014. Denmark will attach importance to finding other ways to continue the good cooperation with Cyprus and to pursue Danish interests in Cyprus after the closure of the Mission,” it added.
More detailed information will be presented on the Embassy website, including information on how the consular services tasks of the Foreign Service in Cyprus will be performed in future.
