According to Expressen, some 100 jobs will disappear.
“Nobody is going to be fired,” commentated foreign minister Carl Bildt.
Instead, people approaching retirement age will not always be replaced, said Bildt. Certain diplomatic missions abroad will also be shut down.
The foreign minister declined to reveal which embassies would be affected.
“That’s a secret,” he said, adding that other offices would be opened since “foreign administration is constantly changing”.
