But your goverment tell us to respect cyprus and greec EEZ. And did give them advice to open a gasform with israel. And when we declar our EEZ is wrong?

Ther is one justice and that is showing POWER. Other wise you and your thugs with Egypt had stolen EEZ and nobody would talked about it:-).
Every EEZ has to be approved in accordance with 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea
It is hard to claim EEZ when it is closer to Cyprus than Turkey

When a American talks about following the International Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) while his own country still rejects to sign it, please gtfo.
Tell us which neighbor does USA have a dispute with

This is Turkey and international community position

"Turkey claims a portion of Cyprus's EEZ based on Turkey's peculiar[9][10][11][12][13] definition that no islands, including Cyprus, can have full EEZ[14][15] and should only be entitled to a 12 nautical mile reduced EEZ rather than the usual 200 that Turkey and every other country are entitled to, including an area to the south of Cyprus containing an offshore gas field. Furthermore, the internationally unrecognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), which was created as result of the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus, also claims portions of Cypriot EEZ. Cyprus and the international community do not acknowledge the Turkish claims[16][17][18][19] on Cyprus's land and sea, which are viewed as illegal under international law[a] and urge Turkey to restrain itself from illegal drilling for gas in the island's EEZ.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exclusive_economic_zone#cite_note-37 Furthermore, EU has threatened Turkey with economic and political sanctions for violating the Cypriot EEZ.[36][37]"

BS, island like Cyprus can not claim EEZ. You should read better before you write.

According to EEZ claim you need a continental shelf what Cyprus and greec island don't have:-).




And american is telling us that we are wrong, this is Law of sea internationally recognized. So how can a island claim more then Turkish continental shelf?




you have to be retared like that nahtanbob if you think we would give them our sea....

We should not give them nothing, should claim what is for cyprus coast. If they want a war should give them a war. We are juridical right.

The law of sea is clearly. This should our EEZ zone...

you cannot unilaterally write laws that an island state cannot have the same rights as a continental state

The laws are clear

https://www.un.org/Depts/los/convention_agreements/texts/unclos/part5.htm

Breadth of the exclusive economic zone

The exclusive economic zone shall not extend beyond 200 nautical miles from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured.


Unless you want to argue Cyprus is an "artifical" island

Yeah should read the whole book not part 1 only and other parts.

https://www.un.org/Depts/los/convention_agreements/texts/unclos/part6.htm

Go read about continental shelf...

The article is Turkish .... so it biased.

Regarding the agreement
It can not be considered as a legitimate agreement for 2 reasons:
1- It is against UN EEZ Laws.
2- It is not ratified from Libyan Parliament.

You have to know that the Egyptian- Greece or Libyan boarders for EEZ is not signed yet .... Egypt only signed agreements with Israel and Cyprus.

Egypt repeatedly rejected the greek’s point of view regarding some lines in the EEZ between the two countries .... Basically, considering Our Muslim brothers in Libya and Turkey.

Knowing that .... for Egypt where are the only 2 Mega Gas liquefaction factories in Eastern Mediterranean .... which if any country want to build the same facility it will cost 10 BILLIONS USD for each. .... so Israel and Cyprus signed deals with Egypt to make Gas pipelines to Egypt for liquefaction and exported via Ships not pipelines .

There is nothing that prohibits Cyprus from the 200 mile limit

An island can have a longer coastline than a large country with limited coastline
the UN laws are clear on coastal states, archipelagos and artificial islands
