I think its not a problem to offer keysigning in the mentioned countries, if an
applicant will be accepted at the end is not decided by the place where his key
was signed. Also there are people from foreign countries living in the mentioned
countries - for example at the embassies - I guess it would make sense to give
them a chance to meet for keysigning, too.
