FM Dendias: “Solution possible if Turkey accepts the International Law of the Sea and the UNCLOS

Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias expresses the belief that a solution to the Greek-Turkish dispute would be absolutely possible if Turkey accepted the International Law of the Sea and the related Convention (UNCLOS).

In an interview with Kathimerini Sunday edition, Dendias said that “a solution, which would be absolutely possible to achieve, if Turkey accepted the International Law of the Sea and the related Convention (UNCLOS),”

The Greek FM pointed out to the two agreements delimiting the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) with Italy and Egypt, recalling that “we have been unable to reach for 50 years in a row.”

Dendias’ statements come amid an escalation of Turkish rhetoric with ongoing threats against Greece, while president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been insisting of cutting any contacts with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

In a U-turn on Friday, however, a close aide of Erdogan said that the two leaders could have a meeting in Prague beginning of October if the Greek PM would do a “gesture.”

  1. I can think of a couple of gestures Mitsotakis could do but I am not sure they would be helpful?

  2. Turkey does not want to abide by international law. They seek to try and steal resources and territory any way that they can from inventing stories to trespassing. During this day and age is disrespectful and lacks intelligence.

    The dictator will win no concessions if he believes that his revisionist aspirations will ever bear fruit. Everyone knows that a democratic and lawful Greece’s sovereignty is intact and well protected. Erdogan does Turkey no favors and the sooner he is ousted, the better. Let the judges this embezzler jailed deal with him someday.
