Ethiopia is to shut its Stockholm embassy. It will be replaced by a consulate, according to media reports.

Swedish broadsheet Svenska Dagbladet reports that the closure is a signal of the cooling relations between the two nations. Ethiopia was once one of the largest recipients of Swedish development assistance, but Swedish criticism of domestic political policy, and a law banning foreign aid money being used to finance projects aimed at helping women and children in Ethiopia have soured relations, Svenska Dagbladet writes.
