    Korea Submits Claims to Extend Continental Shelf in East China Sea
    Updated : December 27, 2012

    The Korean government has submitted a claim to extend part of its continental shelf in the resource-rich East China Sea farther south to the Okinawa Trough near Japan.
    In an official document submitted to the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf on Wednesday, Korea said the Korean Peninsula's continental shelf naturally prolongs beyond the Exclusive Economic Zone, which is 200 nautical miles from its coast.
    Compared to Seoul's previous claim in 2009 within the Korea-Japan joint development zone, the latest extension is up to 1-hundred-25 kilometers closer to Japan, and the area has more than doubled.
    A UN convention maintains that outer limits go no more than 350 nautical miles from the baseline of a nation's territorial sea.

    [Interview : Shin Maeng-ho, Director-General
    Intl. Legal Affairs Bureau, MOFAT] "It's significant that we have officially declared to the international community that our continental shelf extends to the Okinawa Trough."
