Welcome Message from Ambassador Andreas D. Mavroyiannis

Dear friends,

Welcome to 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 and living in the major part of his history as an independent state, with a national problem caused by its mighty neighbor, Cyprus relies on effective multilateralism to achieve peace, prosperity, and promotion of universal values. We must continue to invest in the United Nations as the best hope we have for conflict prevention and resolution, sustainable development, respect for human rights, and democracy.

It is a privilege to serve my country as its Permanent Representative to the United Nations for the second time in my career. My team and I will work tirelessly to advance the interests, the principles, and the vision of Cyprus and of the European Union and to work collectively with our colleagues from around the world to tackle the serious global challenges we face, in synergy and cooperation in a sustained collective effort for a better world for all.

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

Ambassador Andreas D. Mavroyiannis
