Egypt, Greece discuss maritime borders

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

CAIRO – Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shukri were holding extended talks in Cairo on Thursday over the demarcation of maritime zones, developments in Libya and the broader eastern Mediterranean issues.

Earlier, Dendias was received by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Greece had  signed an agreement on maritime borders with Italy, delimiting an exclusive economic zone (EEZ) between the two countries on June 9.

This comes after Turkey and the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) signed a controversial agreement on maritime borders last November, which angered many eastern Mediterranean countries and was deemed a violation of intentional laws by the European Union.
