Arroyo cites Malaysia-Thailand deal as model for joint exploration

Dateline 2018-10-17, BusinessWorld:

SPEAKER Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said a 1979 agreement between Malaysia and Thailand was a model for joint offshore energy exploration, holding it up as a possible way forward in the development of resources in the disputed South China Sea.

“One good practice of such cooperation is the 1979 Malaysia-Thailand agreement to jointly explore oil and gas in a disputed offshore zone in the Gulf of Thailand,” Ms. Arroyo said in a speech at the 139th International Parliamentary Union (IPU) General Assembly in Geneva.
