Vanuatu’s permanent representatives to the UN, Odo Tevi and Monaco’s Isabelle Picco

On September 10, 2018, the Republic of Vanuatu has become the 139 state to establish diplomatic relations with the Principality of Monaco.

Permanent Representatives to the united Nations, Odo Tevi and Isabelle Picco, signed the joint press release committing the two states to further develop their ties of friendship and development.

Until 1980, the Franco-British condominium made this Oceanian state a unique case of joint management by two powers where French and English continued to be the official languages with the Bislama.

In addition, the legal system is based on British and French law.

Vanuatu has been a member of the International Francophone Organization since 1979, of Commonwealth since 1980, the United Nations since 1981 and the International Hydrographic Organization.

Through the establishment of these diplomatic relations, Monaco continues to expand its links with their small island developing States, with which the Principality shares many common positions and works together, particularly in the fight against climate change, actions in support of the protection of oceans, seas and their resources as well as the implementation of the Sustainable Development Program.
