Demarcation Agreement

Greek negotiations with Italy and Egypt were successful because they admitted that the Greek islands have continental bases and economic zones, not just national waters, as Turkey perceives the basis of demarcation. Ambassador Gamal Bayoumi, a former deputy foreign minister, told Xinhua that the signing of the Egyptian-Greek agreement was an important legal development that would allow the two countries to make good use of their resources. He said the agreement would also improve Egypt`s oil resources and its ability to become a regional energy node, given that Egypt has great potential in this area. Four years later, in 2019, he met with Mujë Rugova to discuss the finalization of the delimitation. [13] Ibrahim Rugova has already warned against delimitation in 2002. [14] The signing of the agreement with Cyprus allowed Egypt to discover the „Zohr“ field, the largest natural gas field in the Mediterranean, whose daily production exceeds three billion cubic feet of natural gas. About 8,000 hectares, or 20,000 hectares of land, which stretched over 60 km, remained disputed. An article in the Saud Gazette indicated that it was about 18,900 hectares. [1] The Prime Minister of Montenegro, Milo Djukanovic, said that „Montenegro does not even need one meter of the territory of Kosovo.“ [2] The border delimitation agreement with Montenegro was one of the explicit demands of the European Parliament regarding the visa liberalisation process for Kosovo. [3] In 2015, Ramush Haradinaj insisted that the Yugoslav borders of 1974 be necessary to maintain good relations with Montenegro. [4] The agreement was ratified by both governments in 2015 and was implemented in March 2018[5], which led to the handover of Çakorr, an Albanian region symbolizing patriotism, to Montenegro. [6] Hashim Thaçi, President of Kosovo, and the Prime Minister of Montenegro signed the agreement on February 17, 2018. It was ratified a month later by the Kosovar parliament.

[7] The agreement has been criticised because the ban on travel within the Schengen area was lifted due to more serious border problems between Georgia and Ukraine, but not for Kosovo, which has less serious border problems. [8] The agreement reached four years later shows that very little progress has been made. Just as space interceptors are strategic in nature, they are also space tracking systems. . . .
