David and Goliath battle in the Timor Sea<https://law.anu.edu.au/event/seminar/david-and-goliath-battle-timor-sea-or-more-bland-%E2%80%A6-neighbourhood-dispute-timor-sea>
Despite being close neighbours with deep personal friendships, few Australians know of the David and Goliath battle between Australia and Timor-Leste in the Timor Sea. Timor-Leste seek to mark maritime boundaries with Australia based on the equidistant approach (median line) completing as they say, their sovereignty. Australia withdrew from the judicial umpires on the dawn of Timor-Leste’s independence (2002), for the specific purpose of marking maritime boundaries.
