It is a map ready on the request of the European Union for the settlement of the Unique Financial Zone (EEZ) dispute within the Japanese Mediterranean between Turkey, Greece and Cyprus.
On the request of the EU, academicians Juan Luis Suárez de Vivero and Juan Carlos Rodríguez Mateos from the College of Seville created an EEZ map.
WHERE THE NAME OF THE MAP OF SEVILLA CAME FROM
Because of the truth that the created MEB map was ready on the College of Sevilla, it was not included within the map. “Map of Seville” given title.
This map attracts the continental shelf of Greece based on the borders of the Greek islands, irrespective of how shut they’re to Turkey.
MAP DOES NOT EXIT TO TURKEY
In keeping with the borders decided by the Seville Map, the Greek continental shelf, which begins from Meis Island, descends to the center of the Mediterranean in the direction of the south and doesn’t give Turkey a possibility to exit besides the Gulf of Antalya.
Turkey, however, says that this map unfairly violates the rights of the EEZ.
