    Egyptian officials have revealed that they stand to benefit more from the Turkey-Libya deal then with what is on the table with Greece.
    Last week, an Egyptian official gave a revealing statement to Mada Masr, a Cairo based media platform, saying “the Foreign Ministry and the General Intelligence Service (GIS) were lobbying the Egyptian Presidency for a quiet acceptance of the Turkey-Libya maritime deal, as it would grant Cairo a sizable maritime concession in the stalled maritime negotiations (with Greece).”

    The Tirana and Sanafir islands in the Red Sea were perhaps not of great economic value. This time, however, Egypt abandons a potential wealth by leaving the possible gas field and rich fish beds to Greece. Moreover, in terms of international law, there is no defensible side of such loss.

    Greece cannot finance this loss. Egypt not loosed only its prestige after military coup, but also its lands and seas...On the other side, economic relief, the biggest promise, is still not reached.
