This was the Court's eighth maritime boundary case since the North Sea Continental Shelf cases of 1969. Six international maritime boundaries have also been decided by arbitration during this period. Two maritime boundary cases are currently pending before the Court (Nicaragua v. Colombia and Peru v. Chile), and hundreds of potential maritime boundaries remain undelimited worldwide.
