Diplomatic relations were established between Germany and Malta in 1965, shortly after the country gained independence. Since Malta’s accession to the European Union on May 1st 2004, the traditionally close and amicable contacts between the two countries have become even more intensive. This is underlined by the mutual visits at the highest political level.
