The second map is less visible when it comes to those islands and you somehow present it as how it actually is. The two maps also show drastically different issues. The first one is about continental shelf and the other is about Greek EEZ claim. The real question is, if your position had so much merit why would you resort to such amateurish petty arguments?

    Ofcourse, this is a deflection from your failure to address the example I have given concerning Canada and France.

    Not random at all. As far as spotting Kastelorizzo, I can't but I'll take your word for it. Where is Kastelorizzo's EEZ?

    btw, here is some more info from the researchgate. There are also very interesting maps accompanying this:

    [Turkey] argues that the notion of the Continental Shelf, by its very definition, implies that distances should be measured from the continental mainland, meaning that the sea-bed of the Aegean geographically forms a natural prolongation of the Anatolian land mass [23]. In the same context, according to the Turkish aspect the delimitation of the EEZs in the Eastern Mediterranean should follow the principle of natural prolongation, thus not awarding any EEZ effect or CS effect to the islands of the Eastern Aegean and especially to the Dodecanesian small island of Kastelorizo, which is vital for the Greek national interests, as its influence, if recognized, can connect the Hellenic EEZ to the Cypriot EEZ (See Figure 2). Greece, on the other hand, claims that all islands must be taken into account on an equal basis for a full effect when it comes to maritime economic zones (See Figure 3) [25
