No: 165, 6 August 2020, Press Release Regarding The Signing Of A So-called Maritime Delimitation Agreement Between Greece And Egypt

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 06.08.2020

A maritime boundary between Greece and Egypt does not exist. With respect to Turkey, the so-called maritime delimitation agreement signed today is null and void. This understanding will reflect on the ground and at the table.

The supposedly-delimited area lies within the Turkish continental shelf as declared to the United Nations.

Egypt, who surrendered an area of 11.500 km2 with the so-called agreement it signed with the Greek Cypriot Administration in 2003, once again suffers losses at the expense of the Egyptian people with this move.

This so-called agreement also attempts to usurp the rights of Libya.

It is without a doubt that Turkey will not allow any activity at the area in question and will resolutely continue to defend its legitimate rights and interests as well as those of the Turkish Cypriots in the Eastern Mediterranean.
