Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam and Indonesia held the seventh Technical Meeting on the Delimitation of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in Hanoi from December 15-17.

The event was a follow-up to the sixth meeting held in Jakarta on March 10-12 this year.

The Vietnamese delegation was led by Trinh Duc Hai, Vice Chairman of the National Boundary Commission under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, while the Indonesian delegation was headed by Octavino Alimudin, Director for Political, Security and Territorial Treaties under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
