  • Maritime boundaries dispute

    Peter Epps

    At the association’s committee meeting on 9 March 2016, the following motion was passed unanimously:

    The president is asked to write a letter to the Minister for Foreign Affairs, expressing the view that, in respect of maritime boundaries between Australia and Timor Leste:

    • Australia should enter good faith negotiations with Timor Leste; and
    • if no agreement is reached, both parties should participate in binding arbitration.

    On 4 April 2016, this letter was sent to the Minister for Foreign Affairs.

    Not having received any response, I sent this letter to the minister on 7 September 2016.

    I have not received a response.

    For updates as to progress with the proceedings in The Hague, view this forum thread from Helen Kenneally.
