Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with international law principles and rules that played a substantial role in the diplomatic work, particularly in presenting, bilaterally and in international forums, aspects of the Cyprus question, couched in legal terms. Each case provided many instances where diplomacy was exercised on the basis of the applicable international law rules. Very briefly, jus cogens or peremptory norms of international law are rules from which the law does not permit any derogation by agreement between the parties inter se as distinct from jus dispositivum, i.e., rules which the parties may freely regulate by such agreement. The substantive provisions of each such treaty be it the Law of the Sea, State Responsibility, or any other ought to be accompanied by an effective, comprehensive, expeditious and viable dispute settlement system entailing a binding decision regarding all disputes arising out of all substantive provisions of the Convention..
