Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast has accepted a ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea that favoured Ghana in a dispute over the location of the maritime boundary separating the two West African neighbours, an Ivorian government spokesman said.

“What’s important is to preserve our good neighbourly relations with Ghana,” Bruno Kone said on Monday. “And this judgement allows for a definitive demarcation of the maritime boundary.”
