Nikaah over skype

Q: I want to make a nikaah to a Muslim man via Skype, we both live in the same city (Copenhagen), but the imam and witnesses will be in Pakistan at the time of marriage. Please can you tell me if this nikaah will be valid?

A: The nikaah will not be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
