Athens, Greece – A man has no movement, no action, that it is not directly the work of his personality. The rowdy duo in Eastern Mediterranean, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis (left) welcomed Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi to Athens on Wednesday.
The visit reaffirmed the countries’ close bilateral relations and their embrace of the intention of the new US government to sharpen its focus on the Eastern Mediterranean. Al-Sisi promised that Egypt “will stand by Greece and in favor of its rights, on any issue concerning the country’s security and maritime borders.”
Referring to the maritime border agreement between the two countries in August, al-Sisi said it was “based on the rules of international law, but also on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.” Mitsotakis spoke of emblematic moves for the achievement of peace and cooperation, noting that “contrary to the attitude of neighboring Turkey, the Mediterranean can become a sea that unites instead of dividing peoples.”
Turkey said “No provision for Turkey”
Greece signed an illegal EEZ agreement with Egypt on 6 August, 2020.
Regarding the EEZ agreement between Greece and Egypt, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said: “the so-called maritime jurisdiction limitation agreement, which was announced to be signed, has no provision for Turkey. Our understanding will be put forward on the field and at the table.”
Unfortunately, despite the fact that Turkey constantly says that it is committed to protecting its rights and interests in the Blue Homeland (Mavi Vatan) to the fullest, the Greek – Egyptian bullying duo, who found themselves in the audacity to stand up to Turkey, is essential to remind the disaster that befell Armenia.
