During the meeting Ambassador Cole briefed the students about Malta and its foreign policy, and the role of an Ambassador together with his own experiences in diplomacy, both at Head Office and in Missions abroad. Ambassador Cole outlined the work done by the Embassy to enhance the bilateral relations with accredited countries and informed about the efforts of Malta’s Diplomatic network at the UN and Commonwealth. The students were also informed about the international organisations based in the Hague, the multilateral and consular aspects of the work at the Embassy, and opportunities for post-graduate studies available in Malta.
