  • [01] Cyprus urges all states to respect exercise of UNCLOS

    UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, marking the 30th anniversary of the launch of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) called for a collective global effort to have all nations commit to the treaty, which is often called the "constitution for the oceans."

    At the same forum, Cyprus said all States should mutually respect the lawful exercise of their neighbours' rights in the sea areas where each State has sovereignty or sovereign rights and/or exercises jurisdiction in accordance with the Convention.

    Addressing the 193-nation UN General Assembly during the marking of the Thirtieth Anniversary of the signing of the UNCLOS, Ban said he is encouraged that support for the Convention has grown steadily through the years," adding "like a constitution, it is a firm foundation - a permanent document providing order, stability, predictability and security - all based on the rule of law."
