ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana and Ivory Coast set up a body on Tuesday to implement an international tribunal ruling on their dispute over a border running through offshore oilfields, they said in a statement.

The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea last month drew an ocean boundary that appeared to favor Ghana in a dispute with its neighbor Ivory Coast, ruling that Accra had not violated Ivorian rights in drilling for oil.
