BRITISH EMBASSY THE HAGUE

19 April 2013

Dear Minister,

I have the honour to refer to the Agreement of 6 October 1965, the Protocol of 25 November 1971 and the Exchange of Notes of January and June 2004 which established the dividing line between that part of the continental shelf which appertains to the United Kingdom and that part which appertains to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and to propose that the boundary between the respective Exclusive Economic Zones of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands shall follow the dividing line of the continental shelf as set out in the aforesaid Agreement, Protocol and Exchange of Notes.

I have further the honour to propose that, following discussions between the respective experts of the two States, the boundary set out in Article 1 of the aforesaid Agreement, as amended by the Protocol and Exchange of Notes, shall be expressed on WGS84 Datum and joined by geodetic lines, and that accordingly the text in the English language of Article 1, paragraph 1, of the Agreement shall be replaced by the following:

[Red: Wijzigt de Overeenkomst tussen de Regering van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden en de Regering van het Verenigd Koninkrijk van Groot-Brittannië en Noord-Ierland inzake de begrenzing van het tussen deze landen gelegen continentale plat onder de Noordzee; Londen, 6 oktober 1965.]

I have the further honour to propose that the text in the Netherlands language of Article 1, paragraph 1, of the Agreement shall be replaced by the following:

[Red: Wijzigt de Overeenkomst tussen de Regering van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden en de Regering van het Verenigd Koninkrijk van Groot-Brittannië en Noord-Ierland inzake de begrenzing van het tussen deze landen gelegen continentale plat onder de Noordzee; Londen, 6 oktober 1965.]

If the foregoing is acceptable to the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, I have the honour to propose that this Note, together with Your Excellency’s reply to that effect, shall constitute an agreement between the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which shall enter into force on the first day of the second month following the date of the later of the notifications by each State that the conditions for the entry into force of the agreement have been fulfilled.

I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assurance of my highest consideration.

Yours sincerely,

PAUL ARKWRIGHT
