Response of the Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Alexandros Yennimatas, to a journalist’s question on reports of a signing of a memorandum of understanding by Turkey and Libya regarding maritime zones

Thursday, 28 November 2019

“The signing by Turkey and Libya of a memorandum of understanding cannot violate the sovereign rights of third countries. Such an action would be a flagrant violation of the International Law of the Sea and would produce no legal effect. Moreover, such an action would not be consistent with the principle of good neighbourliness, which should govern relations between neighbouring states.”
