SUBMARINE MINES AND THE POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE OF THE ARAB COUNTRIES BORDERING THE RED SEA

Auther : By: Dr. Badria A. Al-Awadi

The present study focuses on the legal safeguards provided in international law regarding the right of the Arab countries bordering the Red Sea and the Gulf of Suez to protect their independence against threats which might arise from the recent sea-mining. The study outlines several principles embodied in international law such as the principles of Self-Defence and Self-Preservation which are recognized by international society as giving the right to each state to defend its territory and to protect its interests. In addition, rules and regulations embodied in the Geneva Conventions on the Territorial Sea and Continental Shelf of 1958 and in the Law of the Sea Convention of 1982 provide basis for action in accordance with international law to protect the sea area under their national jurisdiction.

Finally, the study proposes that a Regional Organization be established to supervise and monitor the sea-going in the Red Sea so as to provide efficient safeguards to the sea-route in this area against any activities which might threaten the existence of the countries bordering one of the most important international navigation routes.
