  On behalf of my colleagues at the Permanent Mission of Marshall islands to the United Nations in New York, I would like to welcome you to our website. 

  The role of Permanent Mission of Marshall Islands is the primary channel for communications between the Marshall Islands government and the United Nations in New York City. I am honoured to represent Marshall Islands at this unique international organization.

  This is my hope that this website can help you understand more about Marshall Islands. The website is continually updated with new information and is intended to be a valuable tool for understanding Marshall island’s positions. So we have collected our main statements at UN Headquarters, contact information for our staff, travel information and country fact.

  Thank you for your interest in the Permanent Mission of Marshall Islands to the United Nations in New York City. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
