Ivory Coast accepts tribunal ruling in border dispute with Ghana

ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Ivory Coast has accepted a ruling by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea that favored Ghana in a dispute over the location of the maritime boundary separating the two West African neighbors, an Ivorian government spokesman said.

“What’s important is to preserve our good neighborly relations with Ghana,” Bruno Kone said on Monday. “And this judgment allows for a definitive demarcation of the maritime boundary.”
