Manila's shortsightedness in seeking arbitration over South China Sea disputes

The latest ruling by an international tribunal in The Hague regarding South China Sea seemed to be a positive result for Manila, but in a sense it also reflects Philippines' role as a fickle player on the world stage and its lack of vision in handling such disputes.

Deputy PM and FM Venizelos’ statement regarding the presence of the Turkish research vessel Barbaros within the Cypriot EEZ

Hellenic MFA , Monday, 20 October 2014:
“Unfortunately, Turkey did not listen to the voice of the international community, did not listen to the voice of the UN and the European Union, did not listen to the voice of international legality.

Its vessel, Barbaros, is in the region of the Cypriot exclusive economic zone and continental shelf and will attempt to carry out exploration that is obviously a flagrant flouting of the International Law of the Sea, because in this region there is no question as to the delimitation of the continental shelf and exclusive economic zone of the Republic of Cyprus.

Philippines, U.S. to hold naval drills near disputed Scarborough shoal in South China Sea

MANILA - Philippine and American troops are set to hold naval exercises this month near a disputed shoal, which will almost certainly anger China with tension already high in the South China Sea.

China claims 90 percent of the South China Sea, potentially rich in oil and gas and fisheries.

The Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, Vietnam and Taiwan also claim parts of the waters, and China has viewed with suspicion what it sees as U.S. moves to "provoke" tension by supporting its regional allies, notably Vietnam and the Philippines.

Xisha Islands: Vietnam's Provocation and China's Position

China's Foreign Ministry released an article about the HYSY 981 drilling rig in the Xisha Islands on its website on Sunday. The full text is as follows:

The Operation of the HYSY 981 Drilling Rig: Vietnam's Provocation and China's Position

I. The operation of the HYSY 981 drilling rig

On 2 May 2014, a Chinese company's HYSY 981 drilling rig started its drilling operation inside the contiguous zone of China's Xisha Islands for the purpose of oil and gas exploration. With the first phase of the operation completed, the second phase began on 27 May. The two locations of operation are 17 nautical miles from both the Zhongjian Island of China's Xisha Islands and the baseline of the territorial waters of Xisha Islands, yet approximately 133 to 156 nautical miles away from the coast of the Vietnamese mainland.

Ευρωκοινοβούλιο: Η ελληνική AOZ είναι ταυτόχρονα και «ευρωπαϊκή» ...

Σημαντική εξέλιξη για την Ελλάδα αποτελεί η υπερψήφιση της εισήγησης της ευρωβουλευτού του ΛΑΟΣ, Νίκης Τζαβέλλα, που αναγνωρίζει την ελληνική ΑΟΖ ως ευρωπαϊκή.

    Υιοθετώντας την έκθεση της κας Τζαβέλλα για τον «Ευρωπαϊκό οδικό ενεργειακό χάρτη μέχρι το 2050», το Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο αναγνωρίζει στην πράξη για πρώτη φορά τη σπουδαιότητα των υδρογονανθράκων στην περιοχή της ελληνικής επικράτειας.

Η απόφαση αναγνωρίζει πως τα δικαιώματα παραμένουν εθνικά, δηλαδή η εκμετάλλευση τους είναι αποκλειστική υπόθεση της Ελλάδας.

Ο ελληνικός λαός δεν μπορεί να περιμένει

Η. Κονοφάγος, Ν. Λυγερός, Α. Φώσκολος (OPUS)
Εκ μέρους του λαού που δεν μπορεί να περιμένει, όπως λέει και το «έντεχνο» τραγούδι θα θέλαμε να συνειδητοποιήσουν όλοι οι βουλευτές της Βουλής των Ελλήνων, ότι το θέμα της ελληνικής Αποκλειστικής Οικονομικής Ζώνης δεν είναι μία μόδα, όπως το απέδειξε η ίδια η ιστορία την τελευταία περίοδο. Ήρθε η ώρα της ψηφοφορίας στη Βουλή κι ο κάθε βουλευτής πρέπει να ενημερωθεί, για να ξέρει συνειδητά πώς να ψηφίσει όταν θα το προτείνει η κυβέρνηση.

Έννοια και δίκαιο της ΑΟΖ

     Γράφει ο Θεόδωρος Κ. Καρυώτης*
Από μικρό παιδί συχνά άκουγα ως επωδό δύο λέξεις: «κεκτημένα δικαιώματα». Κι όταν ρωτούσα, σχεδόν κανείς δεν ήξερε να μου εξηγήσει τη σημασία των λέξεων αυτών. Ωστόσο, τις χρησιμοποιούσαν τακτικά.
