Mediation Order of Malta - Permanent Observer Mission

Mediation

The Sovereign Order of Malta has a centuries old history of international relations, diplomacy and has been called upon by governments to mediate between hostile parties and during international crises. Diplomatic relations allow the Order to intervene with timely and effective action in the event of natural disaster or armed conflict. Due to its neutral, impartial and non-political nature, the Order can act as a mediator whenever a State requests its intervention to settle a dispute. The Order on its part will voluntarily continue to support the campaign for disarmament and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and, when governments request it, mediation and negotiation for conflict resolution.
