Example text

This paragraph is rather confusing. What do ‘the waters, fjords and ports of the territories specified in article 1’ or the word ‘there’ in the second half of this sentence refer to? ‘There’ could mean either ‘the waters, fjords and ports of the territories specified in article 1’ or simply ‘the territories specified in article 1’.

Before discussing whether the Svalbard Treaty applies to maritime zones beyond the territorial sea, an important question is whether there is anything, either in the 34 MARINE MANAGEMENT IN DISPUTED AREAS Treaty itself or in the general body of international law, which prohibits the generation of such maritime zones in respect of Svalbard.
