Brunei Drops Territorial Claim On Limbang

in Brunei

brunei-limbangBrunei has dropped its territorial claim on Limbang, the area sandwiched between the sultanate’s two halves (see map), putting to rest the long drawn out dispute between the two friendly countries. James Brooke, the first white Rajah of Sarawak, annexed the area where the town of Limbang located and the whole area in between the two halves, in 1890, making it the fifth division of Sarawak.

Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and the Sultan of Brunei, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, signed a pact yesterday to resolve the claim.

As you can see in the map, Brunei is quite unique in that the people in one half of the country going to the other half will have to cross areas in Limbang district, or else, they will have to make a huge round to circumvent the Malaysian territory.

Here are the various perspective of the news about Brunei dropping its century-old claim.

SO, IS THE Sultan of Sulu going to drop its untenable claim on Sabah, the Malaysian state on Borneo Island?

OMG!! Since when did Brunei drop its claim over Limbang?..of all territories which were once under Brunei rule, only the district of Limbang is continually being claimed by Brunei up to this day. As you can see, the true Heart of Brunei lies upon the Limbang River. AND, there’s no such DOCUMENTS stating that Brunei had ceded Limbang. Limbang was forcibly annexed by the Charles Brooke and the previous sultans of Brunei brought this matter up many times though peacefully but it never succeed. Brunei never recognise Limbang as being part of Malaysia.

Md Ataillah,

Ya,you are right Brunei has clarified that it had never dropped its claim on Limbang.
