Chapter Summary

The present convention encompasses the entire Vienna convention on the law of treaties of 1969, i.e. its Articles 1-85, the preamble and all relevant resolutions, declarations and annexes. The introductory Articles concern the applicability of the convention to treaties, i.e. they are concerned with the convention's relationship to other treaties, not with the other treaties themselves. These provisions limit the scope of the convention without prejudicing other international agreements between subjects of international law generally. The convention aims at resolving large and complex issues lying at the very heart of international law. Article 1 reflects a workable distillation of the possible responses to such challenges while confirming the role of the sovereign state as the main actor on the international scene. The resolution confirms that the convention itself deals exclusively with treaties between states (Article 1, N. 8).
