On 25 July the Minister for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade Ian Borg, together with Malta’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, Vanessa Frazier, inaugurated Malta’s new Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York.

During the inauguration, Minister Ian Borg emphasised that the work on this new Permanent Mission has been ongoing for several years. He stressed the importance of having a modern base for Malta as it takes its place on the United Nations Security Council, and he expressed his commitment to ensuring that the mission operates efficiently.

With the short distance between the new Permanent Mission and the United Nations Headquarters in New York, Minister Borg also highlighted how this proximity will serve to enhance the effectiveness of the office holders and diplomats within the Mission.

The inauguration was attended by numerous high-ranking officials from the United Nations and other permanent representatives. Minister Ian Borg thanked all the employees who are working and dedicating themselves to continue advancing Malta’s agenda at the United Nations.

From her end, Permanent Representative Vanessa Frazier stated that Malta now has a state of the art, modern Mission.  She said that this is testament to the important work Malta continues to do in the United Nations. A legacy that started with Malta’s membership soon after gaining independence and that will allow the Mission to promote peace and security, sustainable development, and human rights in the Security Council and in the numerous processes within the General Assembly.

Minister Ian Borg was also accompanied by Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for Foreign and European Affairs Glenn Bedingfield, and Opposition Spokesperson for Foreign and European Affairs Beppe Fenech Adami.
