Dhaka, Jan 9 (bdnews24.com) – The government is going to make its official submission in February to the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf for demarcating the outer limits of its continental shelf.



"We've taken our best preparation to make our claim and after setting by the ministries concerned draft claim will be approved by the cabinet. Hopefully, we can submit it by the end of February," foreign minister Dr Dipu Moni said after an inter-ministerial meeting on the issue on Sunday.



According to the continental shelf formula of 1982, a country can claim over 350 nautical miles outer limits from its coastline.



"We're submitting he proposal five months ahead of the schedule, as the sooner we submit the better it is for us," she said.



Bangladesh was scheduled to submit the report by July this year and it is the 53rd country in the world making the claim.



"The government will validate its claim by producing all relevant data and analyses, and it'll take eight to 10 years to reach a conclusion," Dipu said.

Bangladesh was scheduled to submit the report by July this year and it is the 53rd country in the world making the claim.



"The government will validate its claim by producing all relevant data and analyses, and it'll take eight to 10 years to reach a conclusion," Dipu said.



India and Myanmar have already submitted their claims on the al shelf and Bangladesh has lodged 'objections' against their claims, she said.



"It's possible that they will also lodge similar objection to our claim and all the claims will then be taken into consideration when all of us will withdraw our objections," she explained.



Additional secretary Khorshed Alam said, "We've claimed over 400 nautical miles the size of the continental shelf is as big as Bangladesh."



The main dispute with India and Myanmar is that they have claimed on the basis of equidistance but Bangladesh has claimed on the basis of equity. "We've a good chance to win the claim as in 1967 Germany won similar claim against the Netherlands and Denmark," he said.



Bangladesh has already filed legal dispute against India and Myanmar for settlement of sea delimitation.
