Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias praised the significance of the Wednesday evening plenary approval of the ministry's bill for extending Greece's territorial waters to 12 nautical miles in the Ionian Sea.

On Twitter, Dendias wrote in English: "A historical moment for our country. Following the adoption, with a substantial majority of votes in favor, of the draft law regarding the extension of Greece's territorial waters in the Ionian islands, and the Ionian Sea up to Cape Tainaron, Greece is expanding."

In a second tweet, the minister clarified that the bill is: "In line with International Law and in particular the International Law of the Sea, which constitutes part of the European acquis, we reserve our inherent right to expand the territorial waters in the other regions of the country as well."
