Respect for international law and the law of sea must be total, says President Pavlopoulos

President of Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos on Monday sent a new message to Turkey, in statements during his meeting with Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman at the Presidential mansion.

Friendship and cooperation with neighbours can only be supported where there is total respect for international law and the law of the sea, Pavlopoulos said.

There must be total respect of borders, territorial integrity and of national sovereignty and, of course, of each country’s rights to an Exlusive Economic Zone (EEZ), in accordance with the law of the sea, the president added.
