UNCLOS: Timor-Leste and Australia Maritime Boundary Dispute

Timor-Leste initiated compulsory conciliation with Australia on the 14th April 2016, under the provisions of UNCLOS, in order “to facilitate the conclusion of an agreement with Australia on permanent maritime boundaries”. On the 2nd May 2016 the government of Australia has informed Timor-Leste of its two appointments to the Conciliation Commission. They shall now work with the two Timor-Leste appointed conciliators in order to appoint a fifth member, before the Commission begins its work.
