Wednesday, 21 September 2016 23:05

21 September 2016;

Today marks the 51st anniversary of the Maldives membership at the United Nations. The Maldives joined the United Nations on 21 September 1965 as the Organization's smallest member at the time, with many questioning the viability of a small state like the Maldives, and its ability to contribute.

With the support of the United Nations, the Maldives was able to graduate out of the LDCs, as well as become an MDG plus country. As we embark on a new sustainable development agenda, the support of the UN in its implementation would be invaluable.
