Yesterday, on 14 October, the Foreign Minister of the Principality of Liechtenstein, Aurelia Frick, visited the Magistral Palace. The minister was received by the Grand Chancellor Albrecht Boeselager and by the Grand Hospitaller Dominique de La Rochefaucauld-Montbel.
During the talks, carried out in a climate of great cordiality, the Order of Malta’s activities in the Asian continent and its commitment in the great humanitarian emergencies in the Middle East, Syria and Iraq were discussed. Particular reference was made to the refugee crisis and the effects of the migratory flows arriving at the gates of Europe.
The current health emergency caused by the spread of the Ebola virus was also examined during the meeting. Both the Liechtenstein Minister and the Grand Chancellor hoped that the joint cooperation projects in the humanitarian sector would be developed.
Diplomatic relations between the Sovereign Order of Malta and the Principality of Liechtenstein were initiated in 1994.
