Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author focuses on the role of international law in diplomacy. In any given situation, there may indeed be room for bona fide argument, different interpretations and lack of clarity and certainly so in international law, as indeed in many other fields of the law. Cyprus has accepted the compulsory jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice and is on record as having declared its willingness to have the highest judicial organ of the United Nations adjudicate on the legal aspects of the Cyprus problem. The Commission must ensure that the expectations of the international community and of the new states in particular, which came into existence after the classical rules of international law on this topic were formulated, are not disappointed. International Law must keep pace with the conditions of international life, it must be based on international morality.
