 Greece and Italy are signing an agreement today in Athens to determine the exclusive economic zone between them.

According to the first information, it is a matter of reformatting the agreement that the two countries had signed in 1977, which defined the coastline between the two countries.

The new agreement defines the exclusive economic zone, an extension of the 12-mile sea border between the two countries, but also defines maritime rights.

The agreement will be signed in Athens between Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and his Italian counterpart Luigi di Maio.

Greece and Italy share the exclusive economic zone in the Ionian Sea, starting in the north, in the area of ​​the diaspora islands of Othonos, very close to the Albanian coast and to its south, in the area between the islands of Crete and Sicily.

This agreement does not seem to affect the maritime space of Albania, and even creates a positive precedent for an eventual agreement between our country and Greece. As it is known, an agreement has been dialogue between the two countries, which determines the maritime space between the two countries, which will extend to 12 miles, but still does not determine the exclusive economic zone between our two countries.

According to Top Channel sources in the Greek Foreign Ministry it is said that this agreement could also serve as a guide for issues with Albania.
