Newsline: Canada Opens New Embassies In Eastern Europe

Canada said it would boost its diplomatic presence in central and eastern Europe as well as the Caucasus, opening four new embassies to “help counter Russia’s destabilizing activities” in the region, as the war in Ukraine drags on. “Canada is announcing that we are increasing our diplomatic footprint. Canada will be opening four new embassies in Estonia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Armenia,” Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Madrid. “This diplomatic expansion will help guide Canada’s response to evolving security threats, enhance political and economic cooperation to support European allies, and further counter the impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and support Armenia in its democratic development,” the ministry said in a statement.
