Permanent Missions

A diplomatic mission to an important international organization such as the United Nations is called a Permanent Mission. It represents, and is sent by a member state of the international organization to the organization itself.

The UN resolution of December 3, 1948, refers to ‘Permanent Missions’. The term is defined in the Vienna Convention, which describes the representation of a state in a universal international organization.

  • Permanent Missions help international organizations realize their goals and purposes effectively.
  • They also foster a healthy interaction between the international organization and its various member states.
Permanent Missions are important to international organizations such as the United Nations, where they represent their home nations at an international level.
