    Polish-Danish consultations about the delimitation of the maritime border South of Bornholm were held on February 7th, 2018 in Copenhagen. The Polish delegation was led by Undersecretary of State for legal and treaty affairs at the MFA of Poland, Mr Piotr Wawrzyk.

    Concluding the meeting Minister Piotr Wawrzyk underlined: “We hope the unresolved issue of delimiting the exclusive economic zones between Poland and Denmark, which is pending since 40 years, will be solved in the spirit of good neighborly relations, as our countries are allies in EU and NATO today. Moreover, we closely cooperate on different regional projects in the Baltic Sea area. The practice of applying international law of the sea may prove helpful in this respect. The Copenhagen meeting was held in friendly atmosphere. Both sides agreed to continue expert talks regarding this issue.


     
    The ‘grey zone’, i.e. the disputed area south of Bornholm, is a result of overlapping claims dating back to the 1970s of both Poland and Denmark, located South of Bornholm. Both countries hold consultations regarding this issue.
