Greece: Maritime agreement between Libya and Turkey is void and bad faith

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Greece has referred to the United Nations its objections to an agreement between Libya and Turkey to demarcate the sea border, a government spokesman said on Tuesday, calling it a violation of international law.

“This agreement was prepared in bad faith,” spokesman Stelios Pitsas told reporters.

Greece expelled the Libyan ambassador last week in response to the agreement that reaches the borders of the Greek island of Crete and represents an attack on the continental shelf of the island from the point of view of Athens.
