Welcome Message from Ambassador Andreas Hadjichrysanthou


Dear friends,

Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of Cyprus to the United Nations.

Cyprus has been a proud member of the UN since its independence in 1960. The UN has always been at the core of Cyprus’ foreign policy; as a small state, we see our values and interests firmly embedded in a rules-based international order, and consider the UN as the cornerstone of effective multilateralism to address global challenges, including in relation to peace and security, climate change, protection and promotion of human rights for all, and sustainable development.

It is a great privilege to serve as Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the United Nations. Together with our small but dynamic team, we work to advance the interests, and the principles and the values of Cyprus. As an EU Member State, we also contribute, in coordination with our EU partners, to the enhancing and deepening of the EU – UN partnership which is focused on the promotion and protection of the multilateral and rules-based global governance system.

Please follow our activities here on the website and on twitter @CyprusinUN.

Ambassador Andreas Hadjichrysanthou
