"It is the first time that the Greek Parliament is called to vote on the increase of the territory over which it has national sovereignty, since 1947. The Government proposes to the Parliament the exercise of the inalienable right of our country to expand our territorial waters in the region of Ionian Sea and up to Tainaro, from 6 to 12 nautical miles. This process will increase the area of ??national sovereignty by 10,079 square kilometers and if one takes into account the area created by the legal closure of the bays, under international law, it exceeds 13,000 square kilometers. "So it is an extremely great honor for me, on behalf of the Mitsotakis government, to propose this bill to Parliament," Dendias said.
