Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses each of these aspects in turn, and it considers how these important interests can be reconciled with each other and with the general fabric of international law. The United States has supported the creation of such zones, subject to certain criteria, but to the extent it has been involved in their negotiation, it has insisted that there be no provisions that would interfere with the movement of nuclear-powered or nuclear-armed warships in maritime areas covered. For the most part, the states creating such zones have accommodated this position. As with other aspects of the law of the sea, and indeed of international law generally, the United States has important interests that may lie on both sides of an issue, and it is always important not to consider either in isolation.

Keywords: foreign warships; general fabric; international law; nuclear-armed warships; United States
