Togo and Ghana have resumed negotiations for the delimitation of their common maritime borders. This meeting, the sixth since the start of the process, could lead to the development of a draft agreement and a route plan to be proposed to the governments of the two countries for adoption.
Recall that Togo had between December 2017 and May 2018, stopped two seismic vessels from Ghana from undertaking seismic activities in the deep sea in the territory that approaches Togo.
The incident sparked some concern of a border dispute which could end up at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, however, both countries have committed to bilateral negotiations.
