“Greece has always pointed to the ICJ for the resolution of the maritime borders dispute between Greece and Turkey in the Aegean. This shows a more dynamic and proactive diplomatic approach, since Greece aims to maintain diplomatic initiative by showing genuine interest in conflict resolution on the basis of international law. Prime Minister Mitsotakis wishes to solve the dispute on the basis of international law, because he understands that the costs of inertia and non-resolution are substantially higher than thought. The Court might not accept 100 percent of the Greek positions, but any resolution to the conflict would be a big boost for Greece, Turkey, and the region,” said Ioannis N. Grigoriadis in his interview with journalist John Hadoulis and Agence France Presse.
