India has lodged its objection with the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) over Bangladesh's claim requesting the Commission not to "consider and qualify" the amended submission made by Bangladesh, reports UNB.
"The consideration and qualification by the Commission on the limits of the Continental Shelf of the amended submission by Bangladesh would prejudice the rights of India over the parts of the continental shelf," reads a written communication made by the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations drawing attention to the relevant wing of the UN.
The document dated April 16 was posted on the website of CLCS. The "note verbale" is supposed to be circulated to the members of the Commission and Member States of the UN.
Bangladesh submitted the amended submission on the continental shelf to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) of the United Nations on October 22, 2020.
