Greek FM Welcomes Croatia-Italy EEZ Agreement

ATHENS – The Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry welcomed on Tuesday the agreement between Croatia and Italy delimiting the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the Adriatic Sea on the basis of International Law, especially the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

In a statement, the ministry called on all regional countries “to comply with UNCLOS, which is, as is well known, part of the customary international law.” The Croatia-Italy agreement provides another example of how EEZ issues should be resolved in the Mediterranean region and in general.

Greece, it said, follows this practice faithfully, as it has already signed two such agreements with Italy and Egypt, and has agreed with Albania to jointly submit their EEZ issue to the International Court at The Hague on the basis of the Law of the Sea.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
