ICJ decisions similar to the Mediterranean and Islands Sea EEZ and the Continental Shelf problem;

In the 1977-78 Anglo-French Continental Shelf Case, the phrase "equal distance-special circumstances" was accepted as a unified rule. #Türkiye

📌It has decided that the border of the continental shelf in the Channel should be the equidistant midline based on the coasts of the mainland countries of the two states. It has been stated that the islands cannot have a continental shelf.⤵️

#France is quiet.🤔

Akdeniz ve Ege MEB ve Kıta Sahanlığı sorununa benzer UAD kararları;

1977-78 İngiltere-Fransa Kıta Sahanlığı Davası’nda "eşit uzaklık-özel durumlar" ifadesi birleşik kural olarak kabul edilmiştir.
#aegean #greece #EastMediterranean #EastMed #stillborn
Manş Denizi’ndeki kıta sahanlığı sınırının,iki devletin ana kara ülkelerinin kıyılarını esas alan eşit uzaklıktaki orta hat olmasına karar vermiştir. Adaların kıta sahanlığına sahip olamayacağı, sadece çevrelenmesi suretiyle bir tür karasuları hakkı kazanabileceği belirtilmiştir.
Libya-Tunus Kıta Sahanlığı Davası’nda da, UAD Sözleşme’nin 6 ncı maddesinin uygulanmayacağını belirtmiş ve özel şartların varlığını kabul etmiştir. Özel şartların varlığı, ayrıca 1984 Maine Körfezi deniz sınırının tespiti ve Libya-Malta ile ilgili kararlarda da kabul edilmiştir.

Thread 🪡

Yesterday, @CIJ_ICJ handed down its judgment on the #maritimeboundary between #Somalia and #Kenya. This was the first judgment since the Court’s renewal in February 2021 and Judge Donoghue’s election as President (source of all images: @CIJ_ICJ). 👩🏻‍⚖️
Kenya did not appear at the oral proceedings before the ICJ after appearing at the preliminary objections phase (link to preliminary objections judgment below). However, the ICJ could rely on its written submissions, filed before deciding not to appear.…
Somalia and Kenya had very different views on their maritime boundary. Somalia argued that there was no agreed boundary, so that the ICJ had to delimit a boundary by the 3-stage approach in use since the 2009 #BlackSea case (link below, [115]-[122]). 👩🏽‍💼…

There’s a gaping (loop)hole in #climate reporting, calculations & countermeasures—#BlueCarbon!

Must finally put #Seabed #CarbonSink on agenda for #COP26...

Here too #China leads world in #carbon damage—by far.

Time for accountability on #RoadToGlasgow!…
#Ocean covers 71% of world’s surface..<10% mapped w/ modern sonar.

Salt marshes, mangroves, seagrass beds & ultra-deep abyssal #seabed absorb large quantities of #CO2 from atmosphere & balancing critical #climate systems.

Disrupting risks grave & potentially irreversible harms
.@Nature: “#marine sediments are the largest pool of organic #carbon on the planet.”

Est. vol. ~7 trillion metric tons—>3X cumulative anthropogenic #CO2 emissions since 1750.

Bottom trawl #fishing & #seabed mining—both #PRC-led—risk damaging disruption.…

Thread on 🇹🇷&🇬🇷 standoff in East Med. Early Aug 🇹🇷 sent seismic vessel & warships for gas research on continental shelf claimed by both, 🇹🇷 seeking create fait accompli. This is clear violation international law. 🇬🇷sent warships to prevent this. None wants conflict but big risk.1
#Erdogan wants to revise status quo, incl. the 1923 Lausanne Treaty which defined the borders of the #Turkish Republic. Revisionism is dangerous, that’s what wars are made of. Militaristic rhetoric is not helping either. 2
🇪🇺wants partnership with 🇹🇷, important for security, energy & migration. But EU🇪🇺 mainly owes solidarity to members 🇬🇷&🇨🇾 when facing external threat. Many carrots on table but without some sticks 🇪🇺 cannot be credible. 🇪🇺 on Friday listed sanctions if 🇹🇷 continues escalation. 3

A piece by @MadaMasr on the #EastMed tensions with my two cents.

#Thread with some of my comments.

[Do read the whole thing, it's extensive and very balanced]

#Turkey #Egypt #Cyprus #Greece #Israel #UAE #Libya @prioMidEast @PRIOUpdates @PRIOCyprus…
1. "The Egyptian-Greek Exclusive Economic Zone (#EEZ) deal is important because it settles, at least partly, an issue that has been open for decades in the area and completes another small [piece of the] puzzle in the maritime zone disputes of the #EasternMediterranean"
2. #Turkey's actions aim to“to deconstruct the existing regional status quo & security architecture & bring about a new one that will be more beneficial to itself, in terms of the geopolitical space, the natural resources and the maritime routes that it will be able to control.”

#THREAD #RANT on #Turkey foreign policy

Another article (not surprisingly on Al Jazeera) trying to convince us that #Ankara is the victim and Turkish foreign policy is on the defence. The approach is superficial at best and ignores a number of facts >>…
That Turkey unofficially abandoned regime change in #Syria is not the point: same author, in 2013 Hinnebusch & Tur book wrote "Turkey saw an opportunity to bring abt regime change in Damascus at Iran's was a matter of geopolitical competition between Ankara & Tehran"
Regime change was an unprecedented policy for Ankara to adopt & a revisionist one; by the author's admission, for the purpose of regional power. 4 interventions later it's inaccurate to say that "Turkey's ability to influence the course of the conflict was reduced to a minimum"

#FullText of Press Statement by @SecPompeo @StateDept, “U.S. Position on #Maritime Claims in the #SouthChinaSea,” 13 July 2020:

"The United States champions a free & open Indo-Pacific. ..."…

(Maps from @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks)
"Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the #SouthChinaSea. We are making clear: #Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them."
"In the #SouthChinaSea, we seek to preserve peace and stability, uphold #freedom of the #seas in a manner consistent with international #law, maintain the unimpeded flow of #commerce, and oppose any attempt to use coercion or force to settle disputes."
