The Republic of Maldives has formally established diplomatic relations with the Principality of Liechtenstein through the United Nations’ permanent missions of the two countries.
Liechtenstein is a small Western European landlocked country bordering Austria and Switzerland.
With a population just a little over 35,000 people, Liechtenstein is listed as one of the smallest countries in the world. However they also have one of the highest per capita GDP in the world.
According to a press release from the Foreign Ministry, “Maldives has recently undertaken an active role in fostering relations with the international community and establishing ties with friendly countries.”
Liechtenstein is the 156th country to establish diplomatic relations with Maldives.
