Foreign ministers of Poland and Denmark met today in Brussels to sign an agreement regarding maritime demarcation in the Baltic Sea. The historical sharing agreement between the two countries was made earlier this autumn.

”I am very happy with today’s historic signatures regarding the maritime demarcation between Poland and Denmark. The negotiations, which started more than 40 years age, have come to an end, and we have taken the first step towards formalizing the agreement. This is great news, and shows our mutual determination towards using negotiations when dealing with complicated issues,” says Foreign Minister of Denmark, Anders Samuelsen.

After several intensive negotiations between Denmark and Poland, the two countries came to an agreement regarding the maritime demarcation in the Baltic Sea on November 1 2018. Once it is set in motion, it will demarcate the continental shelf and the exclusive economic zone between the two countries in the Baltic Sea, south of Bornholm.

The negotiations concluded with a solution in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the law of the sea of 10 December 1982 and the relevant jurisprudence. The Treaty will now go through the formal approval procedures in both countries, which is necessary for the Treaty to enter into force.
