According to Norwegian Nobel Committee as of December 6, 19 embassies have for various reasons declined invitations for the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony on December 10. The 19 are: China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Colombia, Tunisia, Saudi-Arabia, Pakistan, Serbia, Iraq , Iran, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Venezuela, the Philippines, Egypt, Sudan, Ukraine, Cuba and Morocco. I have tried to contact the embassies of mentioned countries (expect of China) or the respective ministries. Till now only Afghanistan gave me some answer.
