Greek FM and Environment Commissioner discuss Greece-Egypt dealThis maritime area now also lies within EU waters, to which Community law will apply under Article 52 of the EU Treaty

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias on Thursday spoke on the phone with the European Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans, and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevicius, ANA reports.

They discussed the agreement on the delimitation of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) between Greece and Egypt, which extends the scope of the application of EU legislation and jurisdiction, based on a foreign ministry tweet.

Dendias noted to the European Commissioner, according to diplomatic sources, that the EEZ agreement between Greece and Egypt doesn't only extend the scope for the exercise of Greek sovereign rights, but also extends the scope for the application of EU law and jurisdiction in the same marine area.
