Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of Malta to the United Nations in New York. I hope that you will find this website a useful introduction to the work of the Mission on the wide range of issues it covers in pursuit of Malta’s Foreign Policy objectives.

Membership of the United Nations has been a pillar of Malta’s Foreign Policy since it joined the Organization on 1st December 1964. Over the years Malta has sought to contribute through the United Nations to a more peaceful, safe and just world through initiatives that protect the environment and promote human rights such as those on the Law of the Sea, the Elderly and the Protection of the Climate.

The Permanent Mission works within the United Nations to advance Malta’s interests and uphold its values. Together with other Member States Malta seeks to address challenges of the 21st Century. In so doing, we strive to promote peace, justice and prosperity for all by building a stronger United Nations whose actions will succeed in improving the lives of present as well as future generations.
