The expansion of territorial waters expands Greek sovereignty

Greece has decided to exercise its right under international law, namely Article 3 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and to extend its territorial waters from 6 to 12 nautical miles in the Ionian Sea and the Ionian Islands, up to Cape Tainaro in the Peloponnese.

It goes without saying that this expansion implies the simultaneous expansion of the airspace, according to diplomatic sources.
