Suk Kyoon Kim

Despite a great number of negotiations between China and Korea, the two countries have failed to delimit a maritime boundary in the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea. Primarily they have held conflicting principles regarding maritime boundary delimitation, namely an equidistant line as opposed to the natural prolongation of the land territory. Ieodo, a submerged rock in a strategic location, claimed by both China and Korea, is also another focus of negotiations. Other factors, including straight baselines, military activities, fishery and underwater mineral resources, are also important considerations in the maritime boundary negotiations.
