Kuwait–Saudi Arabia

The maritime boundary between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia was established in 2000 and begins at the land boundary terminus, identified as point G, and then follows a modified equidistance line to point 4, in close proximity to where Iranian maritime entitlements would come into play. The “neutral zone” between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, first created in 1922, was expanded into the Persian/Arabian Gulf and allows for shared access to resources. The extension of the maritime boundary, up to the tripoint with Iran, has not yet been negotiated.
