  • [01] ANDREAS JACOVIDES - LAW OF THE SEA - CYPRUS

    The existing legal framework within which Cyprus makes its moves, with regard to the exploration and exploitation of possible oil and natural gas deposits in the sea south and west of the country, is a very strong and useful tool for the government of the Republic on which to base its arguments in any likely recourse to international arbitration through legal means, Ambassador Andreas Jacovides believes, an expert in the Law of the Sea Convention who led the Cypriot team that negotiated and signed, on behalf of the Republic, the Convention.

    In an interview with CNA, he said that if the matter is taken before an international court, Cyprus has powerful legal points and arguments to put forward, and he went as far as to indicate that should this happen, perhaps it could set a precedent for the settlement of certain aspects of the Cyprus question, through legal means, adding that Cyprus legally sound case is founded on the Convention and on its provisions that have acquired the force of customary law.
