The following piece is an open letter from energy economist Roudi Baroudi to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres regarding the maritime boundary disputes in the eastern Mediterranean.Specifically, your assistance is required to help resolve the interrelated maritime boundary disputes among the coastal states of the region in accordance with the principles and processes enshrined in the United Nations Charter and international law.While this effort has helped to contain mounting tensions, it has yet to resolve any of the key maritime boundary disputes in the region.For purposes of the legal and scientific rules applicable to maritime boundary delimitation under contemporary international law, a total of 12 maritime boundaries can be said to cover the maritime spaces for the seven coastal states in the Eastern Mediterranean.This means that no fewer than 10 potential boundaries and more than six tri-junction points (or "tri-points") -- i.e., more than 83 percent of the total maritime area of the Eastern Mediterranean -- remain unresolved or in dispute.
