In February, 2012 both Foreign Ministers agreed in Cali the Mataje River’s mouth as the starting point of the maritime boundary.

The act will be attend by Ecuadorian Foreign Minister, Ricardo Patiño, and his Colombian pair, Maria Angela, as well as military from both countries.

Recently, Ecuador managed to add almost 200,000 square kilometers to its maritime territory after joining the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This condition allows international recognition for a 200-mile continental shelf adjacent to continental territory and a shelf including the Galapagos.
