Chapter Summary

This article details the statement delivered to celebrate the fruition of the enforcement of the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention. According to history, the sea-faring tradition and involvement of Cyprus with the sea go back to more than three thousand years and today shipping is a major industry. The 1982 Convention and the recent Agreement on Chapter XI could not and do not fully satisfy all delegations in each and every respect. One could point to ambiguities where there should have been clarity, to complexities where there could have been streamlining and to exceptions where there should be a general rule. The author feels that the entry into force of the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention is good for Jamaica, good for Cyprus, good for the United Nations on the eve of its 50th anniversary and good for the world as a whole.
