Welcome Message from Ambassador Andreas Hadjichrysanthou

amb-hadj-1Dear 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

Statement by H.E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr. Nicos Anastasiades at the General Debate of the 77th Session of UN General Assembly  

23 September 2022

Mr. President, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

With only a few months left of my 10-year tenure in office, I stand before you to address the plenary session of the General Assembly for the very last time.

I would have wished nothing more than for this address to have been a reflection of positive developments in what humanity has had to face or is facing.

Like all of you, I would have liked to have applauded the results of the implementation either of the provisions of the UN Charter or of the decisions and resolutions of the General Assembly and the Security Council, which would have assured that:

  • Any threats or attempts to bring into question the sovereignty and territorial integrity of any UN Member-state had been brought to a complete halt or minimized.
  • That long – standing conflicts and disputes had been resolved or where in the process of being resolved, in accordance with the decisions and resolutions of the UN.
  • That the need for the Organization’s reform would have led to the effective prevention of new threats and challenges to world peace.

The whole statement
