Gya: Suriname and Guyana move to arbitration

Suriname has responded to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea on Guyana's claim and has named Professor Hans Smit as its arbitrator.

Guyana moved to the United Nations arbitration process last month, to settle its maritime border dispute with Suriname under Article 287 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Guyana approached the UN Tribunal after it had exhausted efforts at the bilateral level to arrive at joint exploration arrangements for the disputed maritime area.
