Chapter Summary

The rules on "enclosed or semi-enclosed seas" at Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III), there were States (Iran, Thailand, Turkey) which insisted in having specific rules on sea boundary delimitation for such seas. The general rules on the delimitation of the territorial sea, the contiguous zone, the exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf, adopted in the 1958 and 1982 Law of the Sea Conventions, apply to all the seas and oceans, whatever their denomination. The delimitation was mostly based on the median line between the basic lines from which the territorial sea of Yugoslavia and Italy were measured. Such a solution was in accordance with the 1958 Convention on the Continental Shelf, according to which the median line was the basic principle for the delimitation of the continental shelf between States with opposite coasts.

Keywords: contiguous zone; continental shelf; Italy; sea boundary delimitation; sea conventions; semi-enclosed seas; territorial sea; United Nations Conference; Yugoslavia
