Chapter Summary

This chapter first evaluates the importance of protecting Northeast Asian sea lanes and the strategic value of the Jeju Sea around the Jeju Strait and Ieodo waters. It then proposes the formation of a regional marine cooperation system at the maritime governance level for sea lane security. The Northeast Asian seas have been utilized as major sea lanes for trade and military purposes by the littoral states and major maritime powers, and they have long received much international political and economic attention. The Northeast Asian seas have become a major stage of activity for the U.S. and Russian navies, as well as China and Japan. Examination of the legal status of the Jeju Strait under International law, and in particular the nature of the applicable passage regime, begins with examining the relevant provisions of the UNCLOS concerning the conditions and categories of straits.
