Cyprus Eez Agreements
This is another reason that practically excludes future controversies on the agreed line. These competing bilateral agreements were accompanied by a series of Turkish maritime maneuvers that were to demonstrate sovereignty. Last week, Turkey sent a state seismic vessel into waters inside Greece`s outer continental shelf, escorted by five Turkish Navy fighters. The Greek government sent its own warships to monitor the flotilla and order them to leave the area. Turkey`s legal arguments are not convincing and there does not appear to be any real dispute between Turkey and Cyprus over the latter`s EEZ delimitation agreements, with the exception of potentially overlapping claims on certain maritime areas between Turkey and Cyprus. . . .
