Malta applies to rejoin Partnership for Peace

The Cabinet has decided that Malta should reactivate its membership in the Partnership for Peace, the government said.

Malta had joined the PFP in 1995 but withdrew its membership in 1996, following a change in government.

The government said that joining the PFP will not effect Malta's neutrality but will enhance its participation within the EU. Moreover, the Armed Forces of Malta will also benefit from the membership since it will be able to participate in different exercises such as humanitarian and rescue exercises.

The fact that Malta was not part of the PFP was creating hindrances since the government did not have access to confidential documents that the NATO and other PFP members exchanged between them.
