>sea border talks start today after 28 years

>IN a context of higher prospect of finding oil and gas in the Bay of Bengal, expert delegations of Bangladesh and India begin a three-day meeting in the city today to settle unresolved maritime boundary issues.(Full report)
Earlier, Bangladesh and India sat on the same issue in 1982 only to have some primary talks. 
Bangladesh is sharing the Bay with India and Myanmar but has not demarcated the sea territory with them which is creating disputes mainly over offshore search of oil and gas. 
None of the countries has yet to claim about their marine boundaries to the United Nations. 
Back in June, New Delhi and Yangoon strongly opposed Bangladesh’s offshore block bidding for exploration of oil and gas.
