Egypt announced on Wednesday that it will confront any attempt to undermine
its sovereignty over its Exclusive Economic Zone in the Mediterranean Sea.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abou Zeid said that the legality of the
2013 agreement signed between Egypt and Cyprus over marine border
demarcation cannot be disputed.

He stressed that it adheres to international law and has been submitted to
the United Nations as an international treaty.

Abou Zeid added that Egypt will “confront any attempt to violate” his
country’s rights in the Mediterranean.

His remarks come two days after Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu
declared that Ankara does not recognize the deal.

The minister said that Turkey was planning to start drilling for offshore
gas and oil in the Mediterranean.

He deemed the Egyptian-Cypriot agreement as “legally void.”
