What is the only Semitic language serving as an official language of the European Union?

Albanian
Andalusian Spanish
Maltese
Hebrew
Maltese de­vel­oped from Arabic in Sicily, and later in Malta, between the end of the ninth century and the end of the thir­teenth century. Maltese is the only Semitic language written in the Latin script. Through the history, the Maltese language has been clas­si­fied in various ways, with some claiming that the ancient Punic language (used in Carthage) was the base of the lan­guage, while others believed the language to be Berber, and under Fascist Italy, it was con­sid­ered a dialect of Italian.
