Joint Press Statement by H.E. K Shanmugam, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Republic of Singapore and H.E. Dato' Sri Anifah Aman, Minister Of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia: Seventh Meeting of the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Technical Committee on the Implementation of the International Court of Justice Judgment on Pedra Branca, Middle Rocks and South Ledge, 28-29 November 2013

30 Nov 2013

Singapore and Malaysia met on 28-29 November 2013 in Singapore to discuss the implementation of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Judgment on Pedra Branca, Middle Rocks and South Ledge. The Singapore delegation was led by Mr Chee Wee Kiong, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Singapore and the Malaysian delegation was led by Datuk Othman bin Hashim, Secretary-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia.

The Meeting continued discussions on related issues arising from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Judgment on the Case Concerning Sovereignty over Pedra Branca, Middle Rocks and South Ledge.

Following Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong and Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak’s agreement at the Leaders’ Retreat in February 2013 that “the next step would be for the MSJTC to move into the delimitation of maritime boundaries”, the Meeting agreed to set up a new sub-committee for this purpose and held informal consultations on its establishment.

The Meeting agreed that the Eighth Meeting of the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Technical Committee (MSJTC) on the Implementation of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Judgment on Pedra Branca, Middle Rocks and South Ledge will be held in 2014.
