Malta’s role in the United Nations

How does tiny Malta deal with great international politics and is it time to lift the veto of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council? This fascinating topic will be the subject of a meeting with the special guest of Vistula University, Mr. John Busuttil, Director responsible for UN Affairs, at the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade of Malta. The event will take place on October the 27th, from 09:00-12:00 a.m., in hall A4.

Malta is the smallest country in the European Union. Next year, it will join the group of non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, for the second time. The priorities of this term of office will be discussed, during a lecture at Vistula University, by our distinguished guest, John Busuttil, UN Director at the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and Trade of Malta. Participants of the meeting will be able to find out how much the voice of such a small country counts for, and whether the great powers take it into account.

Malta has been a member of the United Nations since December the 1st, 1964. Over the years, it has been trying to actively participate in various UN bodies. It consistently re-iterates the importance of promoting international co-operation, firmly believing that global problems require global solutions, that can only be achieved through the active co-operation it yearns for, and dialogue. This tiny country works for sustainable development. It undertakes numerous efforts in the field of climate protection, an ageing population, and the law on the management of seas and oceans.

We cordially invite you to a meeting on October the 27th, from 09:00-12:00, in hall A4.
