Denmark/Faroes present claim for the continental shelf south of the Faroe Islands at the UN in New York.
Today, a Danish/Faroese delegation performed an oral presentation for the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) at the UN headquarters in New York of the 608,890 km2 claim for the southern continental shelf of the Faroe Islands outside 200 nautical miles. The presentation concerns the second out of five areas, for which the Kingdom of Denmark claims continental shelf. The first claim - relating to the area north of the Faroe Islands - was presented for the CLCS in August 2009.
Acquisition of data and preparation of submissions is still ongoing in the areas north, north-east and south of Greenland. Claims to all five areas have to be submitted to the CLCS before the end of 2014.
