    HELSINKI: Finland plans to close down its embassy in Pakistan during 2012 due to budgetary constraints, the Finnish foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

    The decision to shut the mission in Islamabad was part of a bigger scheme to trim the Nordic country’s network of embassies, with closures also announced in Caracas and Manila. Foreign ministry undersecretary of state Peter Stenlund told reporters the Pakistan closure was also partly due to security concerns in the capital. Pakistan’s foreign ministry said it had been informed of the decision.

    Why waste money having an Embassy in a country that is going nowhere.

    I don't like living next to Somalia.
    By the way decisions to place embassies somewhere are not purely economic. But then Finland don't have any-nomic relations with Pakistan, so why even bother keeping a nerve tab of a bothersome place.
    Well, "good for you" is all we can say. However I doubt a domino ripple.
