Foreign Ministry announcement regarding Turkish officials’ assertions as to the legal status of the Aegean

Thursday, 01 December 2016

Greece’s sovereignty over its islands in the Aegean, including Imia, is indisputable and enshrined in international law.

Irresponsible statements to the contrary are provocative, as the legal status of the islands and islets of the Aegean is clear and has been explicitly determined by a number of International Agreements of the previous century.

Anyone who ignores international legal reality does not contribute to the consolidation of the rules of good neighbourly relations, but in fact undermines them.
