The legitimacy of the 2019 Memorandum of Understanding between Turkey and Libya was rejected, according to a statement issued on Monday by Peter Spano, the lead spokesperson for external affairs for the European Commission.
The statement continued, "The 2019 Turkey-Libya Memorandum of Understanding infringes upon the sovereign rights of third states, does not comply with the Law of the Sea, and cannot produce any legal consequences for third states.
The EU recalls that its position on this Memorandum has been clearly stated by the European Council in December 2019 and remains unchanged."
