In Prague, Albania, Greece Can’t Resolve Maritime Borders Dispute

PRAGUE – There wasn’t any resolution to a long-standing difference between Albania and Greece about their maritime borders even after their leaders met at the sidelines of a European Union meeting in Prague.

In 2009, the two countries agreed to delimitate the continental shelf in the waters between them, but Prime Minister Edi Rama, at the time in opposition, took the matter to the Constitutional Court, noted EURACTIV.

He said the court agreed that Greece had 225 square kilometers (86.9 square miles) of Albanian waters, which frayed relations between the countries and it was said in October 2021 it would be taken up by an international court.

“This is a legal process, there are a number of rules, there are a number of procedures, and we will respect the procedures from the beginning to the end because we have to make our position very clear, we have to make it very clear what we intend in this process and that unified attitude required of this court as to what one side intends and what the other side intends, requires its own time. So we don’t have a consensus between the parties,” said Rama, the site reported.

In 2011, leaked diplomatic cables from the US claimed that Greece blackmailed Albania into accepting an unfavorable deal holding over Albania’s head the threat of a Greek veto for its chances of getting into the EU at some point.
