Notes (incl. non-URL source for text): 
As of 1 July 1979, Sweden will extend its territorial sea to 12 nautical miles or in certain areas to the median line between the Swedish baselines and t he baselines of other States. If Denmark should extend its territorial sea in the same manner, certain channels between Sweden and Denmark would be wholly comprised within Swedish and Danish territorial waters. In order to maintain the same freedom of passage in these waters, Sweden intends to limit Sweden's territorial sea in the channels between the Swedish coast and the Danish coast at Skagen, as well as at Laeso, Anholt and Bornholm, so that on the Swedish side of the median line between the Swedish and Danish baselines there is an area of high sea at least three nautical miles wide. In order to facilitate continued free access to the Sound (Oresund), Sweden intends to institute an arrangement in the areas immediately north and south of the Sound, which will make it possible for foreign vessels and foreign aircraft to pass through and over high seas. This presupposes that Denmark's territorial sea in the aforesaid waters will be limited in the same manner. If the Swedish Governme nt should subsequently wish to extend Sweden's territorial sea in the aforesaid waters beyond the area specified above, the Swedish Government, provided that the Danish Government undertakes to do likewise, shall so notify the Danish Government at least 12 months before such extension takes effect.; FAO Descriptors: 110; 010; 013
