Greece “has the right to proceed immediately to extend its territorial waters to 12 nautical miles in the Eastern Mediterranean, exactly as
Turkey has also done in the same region,” said SYRIZAProgressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras, it was reported on Saturday.
The main opposition leader was speaking in a prerecorded message of his aired at an event titled ‘The delimitation of maritime zones in the Eastern Mediterranean: Legal issues & challenges’, held by lawyers’ associations of Greece and Cyprus, held at Limassol.
This “would serve as a double message: One of determination to defend what we are entitled to based on International Law, and one of a strong will to resolve the issue of the demarcation of maritime zones on the basis of International Law through dialogue and consultation,” Tsipras stressed.
