Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about Law of Treaties. It first describes the reflections on automatic treaty succession. On 8 July 1991 Qatar filed an application instituting proceedings against Bahrain in respect of certain existing disputes between them relating to sovereignty over the Hawar islands, sovereign rights over the shoals of Dibai and Qit’at Jaradah, and the delimitation of the maritime areas of the two States. The Court gave this case the title the Maritime Delimitation and Territorial Questions between Qatar and Bahrain case. The application is in four sections: geographical and historical background; the subject of the disputes; efforts to settle the disputes; and jurisdiction. The chapter presents certain factors relevant to the interpretation of a multilingual resolution of an organ of the United Nations. As stated, the United Kingdom delegate submitted the original draft of resolution 242 (1927) and naturally the original text is English.
