Sweden Embassy In Pakistan: Sweden has closed its embassy in Pakistan indefinitely. The Swedish embassy did not elaborate on the threat, but the political situation in Pakistan is getting worse due to the growing tension between the Pak government and the Supreme Court.
There is a situation of anarchy in Pakistan. Pakistan is already going through an economic crisis. On top of that, the closure of foreign embassy is not a good thing for the country.
Citation of security reasons in Islamabad
It is also being said that security reasons in Islamabad are also being cited as the reason for the closure of the embassy. There is no response from Sweden regarding when Sweden will reopen its embassy in Pakistan. The Migration Department is unable to handle any requests, which is why the Embassy of Sweden is closed to visitors indefinitely.

Safety of the members is the first priority
Sweden government issued a notice saying, we cannot send any documents to our consulate. We understand that this will be an inconvenience. However, the safety of our applicants and staff members is a top priority. It has also been said in the notice that any question regarding the reopening of the mission cannot be answered at the moment. Many believe that this decision is related to the recent incident of Quran burning in Sweden.
A Danish-Swedish far-right extremist burned a copy of the Koran in front of the Turkish embassy in Stockholm on 21 January under the protection of Swedish police, a move condemned by Muslims around the world.
