47436 - The delimitations of the Greek EEZ

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Instead of wasting time with what Turkey does or doesn’t do since there are no strategic reserves upon the anticipated delimitation line, it would be good to activate the procedures with all other countries which come into a point of contact with the Greek EEZ.

We should not confine ourselves to merely Egypt and Cyprus with the triple point of contact and the triple agreement.

We ought to transform the continental shelf delimitation agreement with Italy into an EEZ delimitation agreement, and to continue what we had begun back in 2013.

We ought to overcome the obstacle we had with Albania in 2009 and be concerned exclusively with delimitating our EEZs, without resulting into an ineffective mix with other issues such as the minority one.

And of course we ought to make new contacts even with Libya in order to turn our de facto delimitation line of 2011, through Law 4001/2011, into a de jure delimitation agreement of our EEZ.

And we to result to all these delimitations with the median line presupposition in order to follow what Cyprus did in 2003, 2007 and 2010 with Egypt, then with Lebanon and then with Israel. In this manner we will safeguard our EEZ.
