Australia: Ratification of Sea-bed Treaty

Action type
Government of the United Kingdom
23 January 1973


Communication by Note dated 4 March 1987:

"The Australian Government takes the view that the declaration made by Mexico is incompatible with international law to the extent that it lays claims to rights over the continental shelf which a coastal state is not entitled to exercise under the Treaty itself or under international law as reflected in the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea"
