IIMSAM Signs Bilateral Diplomatic Treaty with Liberland The Intergovernmental Institution for the Use of Micro-Algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition (IIMSAM), an Intergovernmental Observer to the United Nations Economic and Social Council represented by Ambassador-at-Large H.E. Rami El-Attar and Ambassador-At-Large H.E. Inad Nahas, has signed a bilateral diplomatic treaty with The Free Republic of Liberland (Liberland), represented by President Vit Jedlicka. The bilateral treaty aims to promote scientific research, initiatives and education in favour of international cooperation to utilize Spirulina to eradicate malnutrition and achieve food security. In his remarks, IIMSAM Ambassador At-Large H.E. Rami el-Attar, representing IIMSAM Secretary General Remigio Maradona, in the presence of Ambassador At-Large H.E. Inad Nahas, said, “We look forward to working with the President of Liberland in a synergy of cooperation in support of the IIMSAM Mandate and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030. Towards this end we are honoured to have him sign the IIMSAM Free Agreement Treaty in support of our bilateral diplomatic relations in accordance with international diplomatic norms.” President Vit Jedlicka of Liberland said, “Liberland has strongly supported the application of innovative technology to eradicate malnutrition and solve the global food crisis. Our bilateral agreement with IIMSAM, an intergovernmental observer to the United Nations, will leverage Liberland’s knowledge base in the pursuit of achieving food security once and for all.” The Free Republic of Liberland, a country founded on the principles of individual liberty, was proclaimed on 13 April 2015 on a parcel of land on the Danube River between Croatia and Serbia. The land claim was made in accordance with international law regarding terra nullius, as it had remained unclaimed by either Serbia or Croatia and no longer had any state affiliation with either neighbouring country. As of today, Liberland has close to a half a million applicants for its citizenship.
