HÀ NỘI – Negotiators from Việt Nam and Indonesia met in Hà Nội for the 9th technical meeting on the Delimitation of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) November 28-29, says a press release made public yesterday.

The event was a follow-up to the 8th meeting held in Bali, Indonesia from March 22-24 this year.

Vice Chairman of the National Boundary Commission under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nguyễn Duy Chiến led the Vietnamese delegation to the negotiation, while the Indonesian delegation was headed by Bebeb A.K.N Djundjunan, Director of the Directorate of Political, Security and Territorial Treaties under the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

During the meeting, both sides continued discussing issues relating to the delimitation of the two countries’ EEZ boundary based on international law, particularly the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

They expressed their belief that the progress reached at the gathering will contribute to strengthening the strategic partnership between the two nations. — VNS
