The peak of the peninsula, known as Rep Kleka (also known as Ponta repa and Turski rep by the locals from neighbouring countries), that lies directly across the eponymous village of Klek in Croatia, is disputed between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, who last negotiated its status in the 1999 Neum Agreement.[1][2]
