French Embassy: Turkey-Libya Deal ‘Invalid’


The French Embassy in Greece has issued a statement reiterating that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on maritime boundaries in the Mediterranean Sea signed between Turkey and Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA) last year is “invalid.”

The statement was issued after Greek media reported a misleading presentation by a Turkish newspaper of a map published by the French Centre for Maritime Strategic Studies (CESM).

The claims alluded to in the map “have no value, as they are contrary to the international law of the sea,” the Embassy said in its statement.
