St. Lucia, Barbados Negotiate Maritime Boundaries

SAN JUAN – The governments of Barbados and St. Lucia are expected to conclude negotiations on Friday on a draft agreement to establish a maritime boundary between the two states.

St. Lucia said in a statement that officials from both countries have been at work in Barbados since Tuesday.

They were joined by counterparts from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, who conducted similar negotiations with Barbados last year, signing an agreement on Aug. 31.

“As a result of the proximity of these states, there is a necessity to delimit their maritime boundaries,” the government of St. Lucia said.

The UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, to which both states are party, allows a country to claim an Exclusive Economic Zone of up to 200 nautical miles.

The respective national delegations were supported by a team from the Commonwealth Secretariat led by Rosemarie Cadogan, legal adviser on maritime boundaries.
