The borders of Greece are clearly defined by international and European law without any hint of a “gray zone,” President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos said on Monday, during an inspection of the Hellenic Navy Fleet in Faliro Bay.
The Greek Navy will continue to protect these borders and defend Greece’s Exclusive Economic Zone once this is delineated in accordance with the provisions of the Law of the Sea, he underlined.
“I have repeatedly stressed that [the law of the sea] is binding, based on legal precedent at the International Court of Justice at The Hague, in the form of generally accepted rules of international law, including for states that have not signed the 1982 Montego Bay Convention,” the president added.
