Dispute Over Eastern Mediterranean Maritime Jurisdiction Areas

Sertaç Hami BAŞEREN

There has occurred a dispute on maritime jurisdiction areas in Eastern Mediterranean, the dimensions of which are becoming clearer gradually. The oil and natural gas reserves that are claimed to exist in the region exacerbate the dispute. Greece wants

to delineate the continental shelf boundary with Turkey by drawing a median line passing between Anatolian and the islands of Rhodos and Meis, and to delimit the continental shelf/EEZ areas in the Mediterranean with Egypt and the Greek Administration of Southern Cyprus. The Greek Cypriot Administration wants to delineate its continental shelf boundary with Turkey by drawing a median line passing between the Cyprus Island and Anatolia, and to delimit the continental shelf/EEZ areas in the region with Egypt and Greece on the median line principle. Such a delimitation prevents the non-encroachment right of Turkey in the region. Turkey asserts that this delimitation is not equitable, the Cyprus Island and Greece should not be granted any continental shelf expect for their territorial waters concerning its western coasts and the regional islands respectively in compliance with the international law, and that the large continental shelf/EEZ areas should be delimited between Turkey and Egypt, which are the owners of the two coasts dominating the region. English and Turkish, 143 page.
