Chapter Summary

The material breach of a bilateral treaty by one of the parties entitles the other to invoke the breach as a ground for terminating the treaty or suspending its operation in whole or in part. The material breach of a multilateral treaty by one of the parties entitles the other parties by unanimous agreement to suspend the operation of the treaty in whole or in part. The material breach of a treaty consists in a repudiation of the treaty not sanctioned by the present convention or the violation of a provision essential to the accomplishment of the object or purpose of the treaty. Article 60 has rightly been described as one of the most complex provisions of the convention. Article 60 is highly differentiated and distinguished as it does between bilateral and multilateral treaties.
