Abstract

The 1982 United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea UNCLOS is the main document of international law which regulates the various issues concerning the establishment of an Exclusive Economic Zone and the delimitation of maritime zones in general The recent developments in the energy resources sector in Southeastern Mediterranean Sea are changing the geopolitical environment and creating a pressure need for high policy actions for all the littoral states thus for both the Cypriot and the Greek government The energy resources of the region should be exploited for the energy security of EU and Western Central Europe in order to diversify the producing sources Nevertheless for the smooth implementation of such a project the unsettled maritime delimitation issues of the region have to be effectually addressed instead of remaining a point of friction among the adjacent states
