UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday certified a Turkey-Libya deal on the delimitation of maritime jurisdiction areas in the Mediterranean, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency. 

The agreement "has been registered with the Secretariat, in accordance with Article 102 of the Charter of the United Nations," said the certificate of registration dated Wednesday.
