Palestinians say they are negotiating sea border with Egypt

UNITED NATIONS – Palestinians say they have started negotiations with Egypt to determine the boundaries of their undersea territory that could be exploited for resources as a first step to determining the sea borders of a Palestinian state.

Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian UN ambassador, told reporters Friday that this is part of “building the structures of a serious, respectable state in all fields.” He said the resources in an undersea “exclusive economic zone” are “the wealth of the Palestinian people.”
