The law established 12-Nautikmeilen (22 km; 14 miles) coastal seas. The coordinates of the coastal sea were presented to the United Nations in 1993 and their validity was confirmed in 1996.  The eleven continentals of Cyprus are defined in accordance with the continental law adopted in 1974. Following the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCSD) in 1988, Cyprus adopted a new law in 2004 that limited its exclusive economic zone (EEZ) by 12 nautical miles (22 km; 14 miles). The EEZ has been limited by bilateral agreements with Israel, Lebanon and Egypt.  Cyprus asked Turkey to demarcate the maritime borders between the two countries.     The Lebanon-Cyprus agreement therefore leaves room for manoeuvre to define the median line. In bilateral delimitation agreements, it is customary to stop before reaching the point of arrival, as this would require the participation of the third country concerned.
