which came on the heels of much study & analysis
but this recent news report reveals that the difficulty we were having there in determining the exact position of aeomsa is simply owing to the fact that aesa is still not fully settled
Oman, UAE finalise border demarcation
Agence France-Presse - 23 July, 2008
Oman and the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday signed lists of
coordinates and detailed maps finalising the delineation of their
border, official news agencies in both Gulf countries said.
The documents signed by Omani and Emirati interior ministry officials
in Muscat were drawn up in line with a border accord inked in June 2002.
Fifty-one maps and three lists of coordinates were signed, "settling
all outstanding border issues between the two brotherly countries,"
said the UAE's WAM news agency.
Oman and the UAE, which share a 1,000-kilometre (625-mile) frontier,
had initially signed an agreement in May 1999.
WAM said the only outstanding issue was the technical designation of
the point where the borders of the UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia converge
in Umm al-Zumol.
The UAE has differences with Saudi Arabia over their border and the
sharing of a major oilfield there, although the issue is seldom
mentioned in public by either country.
