    Singapore claiming EEZ around Pedra Branca

    Singapura bakal meneruskan tuntutan ke atas Zon Eksklusif Ekonomi di sekitar Pulau Batu Puteh yang mereka menangi..

    Dr. Balaji Sadasivan, Menteri Kanan Hal ehwal Luar Negeri republik itu menyatakan demikian di Parlimen Singapura hari ini.Dan biasanya, kalau Singapura membuat kenyataan mereka akan melakukannya dengan penuh yakin.

    Mungkinkah satu lagi kawasan kedaulatan akan jatuh ke tangan Singapura?


    SINGAPORE, July 22 — Two months after being awarded its claim over Pedra Branca, Singapore is going ahead to claim an Exclusive Economic Zone around the island.

    Dr Balaji Sadasivan, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, told Parliament the "precise coordinates" would be announced at an appropriate time. According to the United Nations Convention on the Law Of the Sea (Unclos), a state can claim an Exclusive Economic Zone up to 200 nautical miles from its lands and islands, and up to 12 nautical miles of territorial sea.

    If disputes arise with neighbouring countries, Singapore "will negotiate ... with the view to arriving at agreed delimitations in accordance with international laws", he added.

    Balaji also expressed confidence that the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) judgment would not be overturned even if Malaysia produced a letter which the latter claims would prove the islet belonged to it.

    The letter was penned in 1844 by the British Governor of the time, William T Butterworth, seeking permission from the Temenggong and Sultan of Johor to build a lighthouse on Pedra Branca.

    Last month, Malaysian Foreign Minister Rais Yatim said he had ordered the letter tracked down so that Malaysia could appeal the ICJ's ruling. Said Sadasivan: "In our view, it is unlikely to make a difference to the court's judgment because it has already ruled that Johor had original title over Pedra Branca."
