New agreement in the Mediterranean against Turkey

August 06, 2020

Egyptian news vision: - In light of the economic war that Turkey ignited after an agreement that delineated the maritime borders with Libya, which he signed with the Fayez al-Sarraj government, the Mediterranean witnessed a new agreement to demarcate the borders and economic areas in the maritime borders between Egypt and Greece.

The "Turkish - Libyan" agreement faced objections from the governments of Egypt, Greece and Cyprus, which consider the agreement to be contrary to international laws.

The agreement was signed between Egypt and Greece on behalf of the governments of the two countries, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, and his Greek counterpart Nikos Dundas, who is visiting Cairo, to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral relations and coordination on issues of common concern.

Sameh Shoukry, Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs, stressed that the agreement "allows both Egypt and Greece to move forward in maximizing the benefit of the available resources in the exclusive economic zone for each of them, especially promising oil and gas reserves."

The Egyptian Foreign Minister stated in a press conference that the agreement was signed "in accordance with the law of international seas," adding that "we will move forward with it in investing promising gas reserves in the Mediterranean."

Following the signing of the agreement, the Greek Foreign Minister considered that Turkey's agreement with the Libyan government of Tripoli is "not legal," adding in the press conference that his country "will face all challenges in the region in cooperation with Egypt."
