The European Union does not claim to be a sovereign state and has only limited capacity for relations with other states. 38623

79 The Sovereign Military Order of Malta is a United Nations observer in the category "Other entities having received a standing invitation to participate as observers in the sessions and the work of the General Assembly and maintaining permanent offices at Headquarters." The order has bi-lateral diplomatic relations with 104 states, but has no territory other than extraterritorial areas within Rome. Its website asserts that "it has always been recognised by nations as an independent subject of international law." The order's Constitution states: "The Order is a subject of international law and exercises sovereign functions." Although the order frequently asserts its sovereignty, including in its name, it does not claim to be a sovereign state. It lacks a defined territory. As with other embassies, Italy could theoretically break diplomatic relations with the order and oblige the non-Italian members to leave Italian territory. Since all its members are citizens of other states, almost all of them live in their native countries, and those who reside in the order's extraterritorial properites in Rome do so only in connection with their official duties, the order lacks the characteristic of having a permanent population. 1722
