LAW OF THE SEA BRIEFING: REFLECTIONS ON THE CARACAS SESSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS LAW OF THE SEA CONFERENCE

This report is a verbatim transcript from the Law of the Sea briefing held September 26, 1974, concerning reflections on the Caracas session of the United Nations Law of the Sea conference. Fourteen members participated in the briefing, giving their respective views on the outcome of that international conference. It was informally agreed that while no specific treaty texts were adopted by the Caracas conference, there was a great deal more progress that tangible evidence would indicate. Perhaps the most significant development was the very broad explicit support by well over 100 countries of the concept of a 12-mile territorial sea and an economic zone extending out 200 miles.
