Today, Liechtenstein is a proud, active and well-established member of the United Nations.
Since the very beginning, we have sought to prove that a very small member is able to make a positive contribution to multilateralism. In joining the UN, we were looking for a platform to work productively within the family of nations and to create a firm foundation for our national sovereignty. Today, I can say that our hopes have been met beyond our expectations." - On Liechtenstein's 25th anniversary of UN membership  (2015)
