PM Mitsotakis on Greece-Egypt Agreement: Legality Returning to EastMed Region

ATHENS — The Greek-Egyptian maritime zone agreement signed today "creates a new reality in the East Mediterranean and brings legality back to the region," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday from Chalki island, adding that it took "15 years of negotiations to end up with an agreement respecting International Law that recognizes all Greek island rights in their maritime zones."

Mitsotakis said the agreement was beneficial to both countries, and it re-establishes the legal order that was disturbed by the illegal and groundless Turkish-Libyan memorandum on maritime zones.

Referring to the maritime zone agreement signed in June with Italy, the prime minister said that respecting International Law is the only path to security, peace, stability and good neighborhood relations. "We will walk on this path with all our neighbors; we hope and expect they will do the same," he stressed.
