Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Mauritius to the United Nations

The Mauritius Mission represents the Republic of Mauritius in deliberations of all organs of the United Nations in New York.

Mauritius acceded to independence on 12 March 1968 and was admitted as the 124th Member State of the United Nations on24 April 1968.

Mauritius is strongly committed to multilateral diplomacy and has taken an active part in promoting the objectives of the UN Charter, in its national capacity as well as a member of the African Group, G77 and Non-Aligned Movement. As a member of the Commonwealth and of the Francophonie, Mauritius works closely with the members of both groups at the UN.

More recently, Mauritius has also acted through the group of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), the Alliance of Small States (AOSIS) and the Forum of Small States (FOSS) to promote the interests of small states and in particular small island developing states on matters relating to trade and economic issues, climate change and sustainable development.

Mauritius has also taken an active interest in issues relating to the promotion of human rights, the law of the sea and reform/revitalization of the United Nations.

The Permanent Mission in New York acts as a channel for Mauritius’ continued support to the United Nations and for its crucial role in promoting peace, development and international cooperation.
