Chapter Summary

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bangladesh invited the Tribunal "to exercise jurisdiction over the maritime boundary dispute between Bangladesh and Myanmar". The maritime area to be delimited in the present case lies in the northeastern part of the Bay of Bengal. The dispute concerns the delimitation of the maritime boundary between Bangladesh and Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal with respect to the territorial sea, the exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf. The Tribunal concludes that it has jurisdiction to delimit the maritime boundary between the Parties in the territorial sea, the exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf within 200 nm. The Delegations of Bangladesh and Myanmar held discussions on the delimitation of the maritime boundary between the two countries in Dhaka from 31 March to 1st April, 2008. Bangladesh's concavity is important in delimiting the area and is the only special circumstance in this case.
