Bilateral Order of Malta - Permanent Observer Mission

Bilateral

The diplomatic activities of the Order are closely linked to its humanitarian mission: the presence of accredited diplomatic missions in 107 countries of the world supports the activities of the Order. In the international political field, the Order of Malta is neutral, impartial and non-political. Because of these characteristics, the Order can act as a mediator whenever a State requests its intervention to settle a dispute.
