In 1986, Italy and France reached an agreement on a short segment of maritime boundary that delimited their overlapping territorial sea entitlements between the islands of Sardinia (Italy) and Corsica (France). In 2015, following nearly a decade of negotiations, the Parties agreed on a more comprehensive agreement that delimited all of their overlapping entitlements in the Mediterranean Sea. The resulting boundary starts at the terminal point of their land boundary and arcs in a clockwise fashion around the French island of Corsica for 466 nautical miles, where it then terminates at a tripoint generated by Spain’s Menorca Island.
