The Turkish Parliament on Thursday ratified a recently signed pact between Turkey and Libya laying out the two countries' maritime boundaries in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah.
On Nov. 27, Turkey and Libya's Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) signed the bilateral memorandum.
The memorandum asserts Turkey's rights in the Eastern Mediterranean in the face of unilateral drilling by the Greek Cypriot administration, clarifying that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) also has rights to the resources in the area.
As the memorandum has already been signed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, following its passage in Parliament and publication in the Official Gazette, the memorandum will go into effect.
