Welcome message from Ambassador Braun

A warm welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of Germany to the United Nations!

The United Nations and its organizations constitute central pillars of German foreign policy. From armed conflicts and international terrorism to climate change or the unequal distribution of resources in many parts of the world, the biggest challenges of the 21st century require a common approach from the international community. As the only international organization with truly global membership, the United Nations commands a unique legitimacy in the search for solutions.

That is why Germany is committed to a strong, forward-looking United Nations. German soldiers, police officers and civilian experts support the United Nations in its peace missions around the world. Our country is one of the biggest and most reliable financial supporters of the organization. Our voice on issues concerning our global future is being heard – whether on the peaceful solution of conflicts, on the transformation of the international development system, on the sustainable use of natural resources, or on the protection of human rights worldwide.

On our website you will find a variety of information on Germany’s role and policies in the United Nations. Should you have any further questions about our work, you can reach us directly by using the “contact form” to be found in the column on the right.

I thank you for your interest in our work and hope you enjoy your virtual visit of the Permanent Mission!
