Turkish Committee Backs Contentious Maritime Deal With Libya

Mr Mitsotakis will be meeting other leaders during the summit, including with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Turkey premiere further said that Greece should be aware that the collective efforts of Israel, Egypt, and the Greek Cypriots will not stand in the way of Turkey's steps in Libya.

The memorandum asserts Turkey's rights in the Eastern Mediterranean in the face of unilateral drilling by the Greek Cypriot administration, clarifying that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) also has rights to the resources in the area. "We will tell them this openly", he said.

Greece's prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, said he discussed the issue and other differences between Greece and Turkey with Erdogan on the sidelines of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit Wednesday in London, adding that both leaders "noted disagreements".

Greece expelled the Libyan ambassador Friday, the latest escalation of a dispute over a controversial deal signed between Libya's United Nations -supported government and Turkey on maritime boundaries in the Mediterranean.

Greece on Friday said it was expelling the Libyan ambassador to the country, angered at an accord signed on November 27 between Libya and Turkey mapping out a sea boundary between the two countries close to Crete.

The deal sparked outrage in the Libyan parliament, which is based in the east and is aligned with self-styled Libyan National Army, led by Gen. Khalifa Hifter. The Parliament denounced the agreements as a "flagrant violation" of Libya's security and sovereignty, stating that they would give the Turkish government the right to use Libyan airspace and Libyan waters, as well as establish military bases on Libyan soil. Cyprus was split along ethnic lines in 1974 when Turkey invaded following a coup by supporters of uniting the island with Greece.

Erciyes shared a map of Turkey's claimed exclusive economic zone, including reference points to the latest agreement with Libya as E and F.

Turkish drilling and exploration ships are now operating off divided Cyprus under agreements with the northern Turkish Cypriot state, which is recognized only by Turkey.
