This Agreement lays down the principles and criteria intended for demarcating the boundary line of the continental shelf between Tunisia and Italy. The Agreement consists of six articles. Article I designates the median line as the criterion for drawing the above-mentioned boundary line. However, with regard to the islands of Pantelleria, Lampione, Lampedusa and Linosa, the continental shelf shall be drawn in accordance with the provisions established by article II. Article III sets up the Tu niso-Italian Technical Commission, which shall draw on maps the median line and the envelope sections referred to in articles I and II. The Technical Commission shall define the co-ordinates of the points making up such lines, as well. Article IV regards deposits of natural resources which are situated on both sides of the boundary line. Article V concerns the settlement of disputes which may arise in matter of installations, giving priority to the diplomatic channel. One Annex, listing out th e points which constitute the median line and the envelope sections referred to in articles I and II of the Agreement, is attached.; FAO Descriptors: 110; 016; 114; 244110; 114; 244
