Representatives of the governments of The Bahamas and the United States of America met in a second round of talks on the delimitation of a Maritime Boundary between the two countries. These discussions, which were held at the US Department of State in Washington DC 10-11 December 2012, followed on from initial discussions held in Nassau in April of 2012.

The discussions centred around a preliminary proposal presented by the US during the first round of talks, indicating its initial positions on where it considered the line of maritime demarcation should be between the two countries. During this session, The Bahamas delegation presented a comprehensive counter-proposal, which analysed the proposal of the US and put forth The Bahamas’ position.

The talks were held in the spirit of mutual respect and appreciation for the long standing friendly relationship that exists between the two countries.

At the conclusion of the negotiations, both sides came away with a better understanding of each other’s position, and committed themselves to working towards the successful resolution of those points where there were diverging viewpoints.
