Singapore-Malaysia maritime boundary delimitation committee holds first meeting

SINGAPORE: A committee set up to discuss boundary delimitation in the waters between Singapore and Malaysia has held “constructive discussions” in its first meeting, said Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Wednesday (May 15).

The committee, which was established following a meeting between the foreign ministers of both countries in March, met in Singapore on Monday.

It is chaired by Mr Chee Wee Kiong, Singapore’s Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Mr Muhammad Shahrul Ikram Yaakob, Malaysia’s Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“The two delegations had constructive discussions on maritime boundary delimitation which provided a good basis for further negotiations,” said an MFA spokesperson in response to CNA’s queries.
