During his visit to the United States, Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis hopes to win the support of the White House and strengthen his hand in the agreement between Egypt and Greece to delimit the EEZ. The EU said it would be available to the Greek and Cypriot duo on the current issue and called on Turkey to act in accordance with European Neighbourhood Policy and stressed that the text of the treaty should be published. On the other hand, southern Cyprus has announced that it will prepare an appeal to the International Court of Justice. However, in accordance with Article 59 of UNCLOS, „the conflict should be resolved on the basis of justice and taking into account all relevant circumstances, taking into account the respective importance of the interests involved to the parties and to the international community as a whole.“ NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg answered a question about Turkey`s drilling activities in the eastern Mediterranean at the 2019 NATO Summit in London. „Both Greece and Turkey are valued allies and they both contribute to our common security. There are some differences of opinion and I am pleased that there are bilateral contacts trying to address these differences,“ Stoltenberg said, adding that NATO was not part of these bilateral discussions. He also said that one of the reasons NATO has succeeded is that it does not participate „in all the difficult issues“ in the region. It is an indication that the Greeks are turning their wheels, if at all. The agreement, officially titled „Memorandum of Understanding Between Turkey and Libya on Ablimitation of the Maritime Jurisdiction Areas in the Mediterranean,“ has been particularly criticized by countries such as Egypt, Greece and Cyprus in the Mediterranean basin. Technically, „maritime zones“ are unilateral declarations of contiguous areas, EEZ borders or territorial coastal states within maritime areas that are not linked to other neighbouring states. On the other hand, „maritime borders“ are in line with the restrictions imposed by an agreement to determine the relevant borders between states in the event of marine overlapping or multiple claims to the territory. The agreement stipulates that both Turkey and Libya have established a precise and fair delimitation of their respective marine areas in the Mediterranean, in which the parties exercise their sovereign sovereignty and/or sovereign rights and/or high court, in accordance with the applicable rules of international law, taking into account all relevant circumstances.
