• Ghana, Ivory Coast head to court over sea boundary


    ACCRA: Ghana and Ivory Coast are heading to a United Nations tribunal to resolve a dispute over the maritime boundary separating the two oil-producing nations, Ghana’s attorney general said on Thursday. The maritime border between the two countries cuts through offshore oil fields that both nations are eager to exploit, but there are claims the boundary has not been properly demarcated. Attorney General Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong told Agence France-Presse that Ghana decided to file a suit against its neighbor under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea after months of talks failed to reach an agreement.
