Libya rejects unilateral maritime border demarcation by Egypt

Libya’s Foreign Ministry rejected in a statement on Friday the unilateral decision made on December 11 by Egypt to demarcate maritime borders. 

The statement indicated that the Egyptian demarcation is unjust because it was unilaterally announced, violated Libya’s territorial integrity and the principles of good faith as well as respect for sovereignty.

The Libyan Foreign Ministry also remarked that the delimitation of the borders between the two countries must take place by mutual agreement through negotiations that guarantee the interests of both parties and respect the principle of equality.

“We warn Egypt that this could be referred to Chapter VI, Article 33 of the UN Charter: Pacific Settlement of Disputes, as well as the International Criminal Court.” The Foreign Ministry said.
