Foreign relations of Seychelles

Seychelles follows a policy of what it describes as "positive" nonalignment[?] and strongly supports the principle of reduced superpower presence in the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles Government is one of the proponents of the Indian Ocean zone of peace concept and it has promoted an end to the United States presence on Diego Garcia. Seychelles' foreign policy position has placed it generally toward the left of the spectrum within the Nonaligned Movement. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, France, India, China, and Cuba maintain embassies in Victoria[?]. Seychelles has an ambassador resident in New York dually accredited to the United Nations and to the United States. It also has resident ambassadors to the United Kingdom, France, and Malaysia.
