Greece-Egypt EEZ

Postby Kikapu » Fri Aug 07, 2020 6:04 pm

If things were not bad enough for Turkey in the Med, it has gotten a little bit more worse yesterday with the agreement between Greece and Egypt, whom drew their lines between the two countries to create their own EEZ. No doubt the next EEZ agreement will come between Republic of Cyprus and Greece. Can't say there are any surprises here after Turkey-Libya formed their own EEZ in violations of Greece's EEZ and the RoC's, claims made by Greece, RoC, EU and the USA. Now what?

Thats is all basically correct.

Look at the size of Malta's EEZ. that is relatively huge for the size of the country? Why? because that is the middle between neighboring states.

For every 1m of EEZ Turkey claims running perpendicular to her entire coastline, all the neighboring states can do the same. At some point, they will meet in the middle. Thats what you have here.

Turkey is very strange, very strange.

She claims islands cant have an EEZ but the "TRNC" does and the TC claim that they have rights to RoC's EEZ. Turkey, apparently is protecting their interests while arguing that islands dont have an EEZ at the same time. At the same time, not recognizing the RoC. But then and even though the TC's proclaim they are a separate state, they still think they have a right to share the RoC's EEZ while claiming their own that is not for sharing. But in deed, Turkey is not prospecting for gas in the "TRNC's" EEZ. So, the TC's are being hung out to dry. Both are under the impression they are winning at something. Nope. Its all childish, unreasonable, hypocritical arguments. They need to grow up.

Then Turkey argues that she has the longest coastline, so she should have the biggest EEZ. With this argument, she should get the longest EEZ, not the deepest. It all depends on where the middle is between neighboring states. Equal share is slap bang in the middle, but Turkey has a strange perception of sharing equally as we all very well know. Can other neighboring states argue that because Turkey has more land, Turkey should give some to them? Yes, based on Turkeys logic, she should share equally and lead by example.

Turkey is not a leader though, no a chance. She drags others that want to get ahead backwards. Cyprus demonstrates more leadership skill than Turkey does, any day of any week.

Turkey is just completely un-credible and creates problems. domestically and internationally.

if Turkey wanted to be part of gas projects, what she should have done is listened from the beginning and end the occupation of Cyprus. She should have invested already, years of cultivating brotherly relations with neighbours. What happened instead. Turkey, has a long track record of creating problems with neighbors and together with the TC's, wanted to stop the RoC from exploring for gas, just so they could get their way. They were not interested in receiving any benefit from the gas.. However, unable to stop the RoC, Turkey chose to provoke, obstruct and make false claims to other nations EEZ out of envy and feelings of powerlessness..

What she should have done if she wanted to be included so bad was to get the hell out of Cyprus and apply for the licensing of blocks and propose to build a pipeline independently. Which could have been conditionally accepted as part of the solution on ending the illegal occupation of Cyprus.

Not that I think she has the capability to actually extract gas anyway. What she is doing is just for show to try and create fait accompli's through gun boat diplomacy.

But she is absolutely stupid with this because she wants her cake and to eat it too. Even though that is the costliest path and of great resistance. That is what she chose.

if she carries on down this path, she will probably end up with nothing and get penalized in other areas instead.

:lol: :lol:

Obviously the 'cunt' was mistaken.
We all know the Anatolian sh** stain has no interest in solving the problem they facilitated in creating in CY

That's why the only solution to CY is for Cypriots coming together.

Hey Oceans, did it ever occur to you, maybe, just maybe....
A large scale Cypriot 'peace' operation, where we saved the oppressed Kurdish minority in so called 'Tu**ey'
Along with the oppressed locals?

Crazy innit? Maybe not as crazy as you think.

...i see the compromise quite clearly; thanks for the map.

One point, where Turkey, Greece, Egypt, and Cyprus meet, if 'that triangle' is made bigger.

...Turkey of course is demanding more from Greece in the Aegean.

The Turks have plugged their anus's with some boiled koliandro and set sail on the oruc reis to Greece's internationally recognised EEZ.

Endorgan, unhappy with the deceleration of the Greek-Egypt EEZ says Greece broke its promise on the issue. (What promise was that?)

Greece is still keeping good on her word to engage Turkey with constructive dialogue about demarcating their respective EEZ based on international law or to go to arbitration in case of disagreement.

The EU needs to impose severe sanctions already.

They seriously need to wake up and reclassify Turkey as a rogue, lawless state and a foe to the union.

Over the years I convinced myself Replusewarrier was smoking the best whackybacky available but I'm having second thoughts now. Come on Cap, don't fuck about, I want some of your gear mate, can I PM you with my address? :shock: :shock:
