Agreements were signed Monday in Maputo, Mozambique, the Mozambican Minister of Foreign Affairs Oldemiro Baloi, Minister of Tanzania'' Habitat, Housing and Urban Affairs Anna Tibaijuka, and the Minister of Posts Comoros, Transport and Tourism Rastam Mouhidine.
The Mozambican minister recalled at a news conference after the signing ceremony that the border demarcation process began in 1985 but had never really ended for financial reasons technical and conceptual.
"The demarcation should be made on the basis of consensus, and in accordance with international law. The agreements we have signed are inspired by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of ??1982," added the Minister of Mozambique.
The three ministers all agreed that the delimitation of maritime boundaries had nothing to do with the recent discovery of hydrocarbons in Mozambique.
For his part, Mozambican President Armando Guebuza, who attended the signing ceremony, said that the delimitation was in line with the objectives of the African Union, which has always advocated a clear demarcation of land and sea borders as it is a guarantee of stability and peace among nations and peoples of Africa.
Comoran President Ikililou Dhoinine and Tanzanian Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda also attended the signing ceremony.
At least 136 bodies have been retrieved after a ferry sank on Lake Victoria, Tanzania’s top police official Simon Sirro said on Friday, and scores more were still feared missing as rescuers searched for survivors on the morning after the disaster.
