Chapter Summary

The Truman proclamation concerning the continental shelf was adopted in 1945, and the Lima Declaration on the maritime zone was adopted in 1952. The delimitation agreement entered into force in 19804 delimits the territorial sea and the continental shelf of the two Parties. A different solution, but having the same aim of avoiding disputes over the delimitation of future exclusive economic zones, was adopted by India and Indonesia. The two States, which had already delimited their seabed boundaries with two agreements, adopted in 1974 and 1977, decided to apply the continental shelf boundary also for the delimitation of the exclusive economic zone, without formalising this decision by inserting it into a treaty. The issue considered in this paper has generally been presented as the possibility to extend the continental shelf boundary to the delimitation of the super-jacent waters.
