On Friday, 18 November 2022, the Maltese Ambassador to Israel, H.E. Cecilia Attard-Pirotta, together with Mr Charles Calleja, First Secretary at the Embassy of Malta in Tel Aviv, received at the Embassy in Tel Aviv High School students studying diplomacy. The students visited the Embassy as part of the Debate for Peace Model UN Program here in Israel.


 “By moving ideas and encouraging discussions, we are building stronger ties between the people of Malta and the people of Israel” said Attard-Pirotta. During the Presentation, the Ambassador also referred to the work sought by the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade ahead of Malta’s upcoming tenure in the United Nations Security Council during the years 2023 and 2024.  The Maltese Ambassador highlighted the groundwork warranted for the Maltese diplomatic mission in Israel, which in turn serve to promote the Maltese islands. Ambassador Attard-Pirotta took the opportunity to encourage the students to pursue a career in diplomacy.


First Secretary, Mr. Charles Calleja, outlined the duties entailed by the Maltese Embassy in Israel, and then gave an overview of the history of the Maltese Islands, an overview of the country’s economy, and the work being done by Maltese Diplomats across the globe.
