The Fate of the Agreement of 30 July 2007 in the Dispute Over the Delimitation of Maritime Boundaries between R.D.Congo and Angola: A Consideration based on the 1982 UNCLOS Forecast and the Principles of Maritime Delimitation Law

Malangu Mposhy Daddy


Abstract: The question of the path of agreement in the law of the sea is provided for in Articles 15, 74, 76 and 83 of UNCLOS 1982. In the dispute over the maritime boundaries to be defined between DRC and Angola, the question arises on the Agreement of 30 July 2007. While DRCongo refutes the fact that it would relate to the maritime delimitation, Angola maintains the contrary on the basis of Articles 76 and 83 CNDUM. To resolve such issues, the 1982 UNCLOS opened in Article 293 the path to other rules of international law which are not inconsistent with it to be included in the analysis which could lead to durable solution. The tripoint constituted by the provisions of the CNDUM, the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties of 1969 and the forecasts of the case-law are bases on which the final position to be adopted in the case under study can be justified.
