Ghana and Ivory Coast set up body to implement maritime border ruling

ACCRA, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Ghana and Ivory Coast set up a body on Tuesday to implement an international tribunal ruling on their dispute over a border running through offshore oilfields, they said in a statement.

The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea last month drew an ocean boundary that appeared to favour Ghana in a dispute with its neighbour Ivory Coast, ruling that Accra had not violated Ivorian rights in drilling for oil.
