Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias welcomed the Egyptian-Greek agreement as an “exemplary agreement”. Neither minister, however, disclosed the details of the deal. Egypt also criticized the deal and called it “illegal.” Turkey has increased military aid to Libyan allies, but the accompanying maritime deal has fueled the geopolitics of the Mediterranean. Greece and Egypt were among those who raised strong objections. Turkey and the Government of National Unity have signed a border treaty[a] to create an exclusive economic zone in the Mediterranean, which means they can claim rights over seabed resources.
