Council sources told the Malta Times that Malta agreed with the EU`s intention to make a counter-declaration, although this week`s ambassadorial talks did not result in a final agreement on the text. Air Malta and Turkish Airlines signed a codeshare agreement in 2008.  To date, Turkey has not allowed Cypriot ships to enter their ports and is preventing Cypriot aircraft from crossing their airspace. The sources said that if Turkey wants to become a member of the EU club, these conditions must go away, as they are contrary to the customs union agreement. Malta withdrew from the mission in May 2020 after reaching an agreement with the UN-backed Government of the National Agreement (GNA) to prevent the influx of irregular migrants into Malta. The three countries also agreed to create a joint working team to coordinate efforts and cooperation in transforming agreements into concrete and practical projects. Malta agreed on the issue of a counter-declaration proposed by the EU after Turkey unilaterally declared last July that its extension of the customs union to the ten “new” EU member states did not mean recognition of Cyprus. EU foreign ministers yesterday agreed to support the European Commission`s recommendation to freeze accession negotiations on eight crucial chapters with Turkey until Turkey fully complies with an agreement it has reached with the EU before accession negotiations begin.
