Still no progress in the Togo-Ghana maritime border conflict

(Togo First) - On April 29-30, a meeting relating to the issue of demarcation between Ghana and Togo’s maritime borders was held.  

So far, very little progress has been made because we are yet to discuss the quintessence of this issue concerning our maritime borders,” said Stanilas Baba, president of the high council for the Sea and member of the team in charge of negotiating with the Ghanaian party in the matter. “It is therefore time to really start negotiations, he added after the meeting which proved non-conclusive.

The recent meeting is one of many held over the past year (June, October and December) but were unfruitful. Still, both parties are determined to solve the problem.

Let’s recall that a few months back, tensions related to the challenge arose. It is also important to be precise that the area at the heart of the conflict hosts the East Keta ultra-deep oil block, a site highly coveted by both countries.
