Is Europe about to move below Africa as direction of tectonic plates shifts?

We may be seeing the start of a new subduction zone. The Eurasian plate is 85% land mass with a very undefined plate boundary on its southern border connecting to the African, Indian and Australian plates. The continents are converging; and for many millions of years, the northern edge of the African tectonic plate has descended under Europe.

Geologic features in the present-day Mediterranean essentially result from two major processes: the tectonic displacement caused by the subduction of the African plate underneath the Eurasian plate; and the progressive closure of the Mediterranean sea involving a series of submarine-insular sills.
