MUNPlanet: Please be so kind to give us some information about KMFAP, its history and purpose?

- It’s not an easy task to introduce the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Federation of the Autonomous Priories. As you can see, even our name is the longest among the sovereign states of the World. We are a direct descendant of the old historical Order of Saint John of Jerusalem - also known as the Hospitaller Knights, or the Knights of Malta, created as an entity in Jerusalem around the year 1040.
