Greece is preparing to extend its territorial waters to 12 nautical miles (22.2km) from its western shores. It is an apparent show of strength as it prepares to resume talks with Turkey on agreeing to the limits of their continental shelves.
As Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Athens, the two issues are closely related.

ΔΑΙΔΑΛΟΣ / Daedalus says:

the right to expand your territorial waters to 12 miles is part of the Law of the Seas that voted by the UN Assembly. All the coastal countries already expanded their waters in the previous years, even Turkey expanded its waters despite the fact that she didn't sign this UN agreement.
Greece will expands its territorial waters all over the Aegean Sea except a part of it in order to let an international sea-corridor for the ships that use the route Bosporous Straits-Mediterranean. Turkey's objection is that the Turkish ships from Istanbul will need Greek permission to sail to the Mediterranean. So, Greece will mot expand its territorial waters to the entire Aegean sea creating this sea-corridor for the Turkish, Russian, Bulgarian, Romania etc ships that use the route Black Sea-Meditteranean. Everyone should be happy now.

I love how europeans have the right to make laws to expand, then self accept them and enforce it on others. When others dont accept it, its violence of law and threats against world peace.
