This negotiation chapter covers issues relating to Territory. The main issues concern (a) territorial adjustments in relation to the percentage that each constituent state will have in terms of land and coastline, as well as the number of people that would be able to return under the territorially adjusted areas, (b) the territory boundaries of each constituent state depicted on a map (c) mechanisms and arrangements for relocation and resettlement, and the phasing of territorial adjustments. This negotiation chapter is closely linked with the chapter on property. 

All issues are negotiated based on the agreed framework for a federal solution underpinned by the principles of bi-zonality, bi-communality, political equality, single sovereignty, single international personality and single citizenship
