PH, Indonesia sign sea border pact
MetadataShow full item record
Indonesia and the Philippines on Friday signed three agreements, including a historic document on the delimitation of the exclusive economic zone boundaries of both countries in the Mindanao Sea and in the Celebes Sea. Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said the agreement on the overlapping EEZ was a “good example” of how to resolve territorial disputes peacefully. President Benigno Aquino III said the agreement, which ended 20 years of negotiations between Jakarta and Manila, was founded on the principles of international law, particularly the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Seas.
