I do know that in the past one diplomatic establishment will act for 
another where the other has no representatives in that country. E.g 
Commonwealth countries would usually try to help one another out. And I 
think Russia also substitutes for some other adjacent countries. The 
services offered varied depending of the countries and place. I'd not 
tag it.
