On February 1st, the two maritime services signed this agreement, first established in 1989, to plan, prepare and respond to transboundary maritime pollution incidents. It further promotes the protection of shared interests in these environmentally and culturally significant trans-boundary waters including mechanisms for better cross-border cooperation including the possibility to help share information.
