35855 - Towards the Triple Alliance

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Egypt, Greece and Cyprus are progressing steadily, even though not dynamically, due to typical objections towards the triple alliance, as far as the Triple Point of Contact is concerned.
It is a focal point which allows the juncture of three demarcation lines.
Each midline which would reach upon the triple point of contact will become the result of an agreement between two States, as this is what’s provided by the Law of the Sea.
Consequently, the agreement we are expecting is in actual fact three demarcation agreements: the extension of the 2003 and 2012 demarcation between Egypt and Cyprus, the demarcation between Greece and Cyprus with a contact length of 48.6km, and the demarcation between Egypt and Greece.
This goes to say that our co-ordinated moves are now following a strategic mental scheme which constitutes a strategic mix.
Things could certainly proceed much faster, however, what’s important is for them to occur, and for us to overcome local approaches which aren’t suitable to this national issue, since this constitutes an above political party matter, and a transnational one at that.
We are therefore observing the three countries coming closer and closer, so that they are realizing that they are together as from the beginning, even though governments are complicating things in a wrong manner.
