A bear, A wolf ‘n A fox once met ‘n began complaining of how they were often obliged to go hungry for so long that the got cramps in their bellies. They bewailed their sad lot,they talked it all over ‘n decided to live as brothers. From now on,they said,we shall share whatever food comes our way. Thus resolved,they embraced in true brotherly fashion,vowed to be faithful to one another ‘n together set out to hunt for prey.

They walked along,looking out for something to pounce upon,’n after a while came upon a young wounded deer. Killing it off on the spot,they seated themselves in the shade on the grass ‘n began dividing their booty.

Said the bear to the wolf whose jaws were stiff from gnashing his teeth in hunger: “Come, Wolf, u divide the deer among us.” “Very well,” the wolf agreed. “The head will go to u,bear,u being our lord ‘n master,the body to me,’n the legs to the fox,since she is so fleet of foot.”

But the wolf had not finished before the bear struck him such a blow on the head with his paw that the mountains rang with the sound of it.

The wolf gave a howl of pain ‘n fell in a heap. ‘n the bear turned to the fox ‘n said: “N now,mistress fox,u divide the deer.”

The fox,who was very sly,rose ‘n said in flattering tones: “The deer’s head is yours by right,bear,for u ar our lord ‘n master; the deer’s body is yours,for u hv always cared for us like a father; ‘n the deer’s legs are yours too,for u hv ever stepped forward to benefit us.”

“U are clever indeed, mistress fox,” said the bear.

“Whoever taught u this very wise ‘n sensible way of viding booty?” “How could I help learning wisdom,my lord” the fox replied.

“I hv watched u giving the wolf a lesson!”

Indonesia with UNCLOS 1982.

United Nations Convention On The Law Of The Sea (UNCLOS)

The States Parties to this Convention,

Prompted by the desire to settle, in a spirit of mutual understanding and co-operation, all issues to the law of the sea and aware of the jistoric significance of this Convention as an important contribution to the maintenance of peace, justice and progress for all peoples of the world,

Nothing that developments since the United Nations Conferences on the Law of the Sea held at Geneva in 1958 an 1960 have accentuated the need for a new and generally acceptable Convention on the law of the sea,

Conscious that the problems of ocean space are closely interelatted and need to be considered as a whole,

Recognizing the desirability of establishing through this convention, with due regard for the soveriegnity of all states, a legal order for the seas and oceans which will facilitate international communication, and will promote the peaceful usue of the seas and oceans, the equitable and efficient utilization of their resources, the conservation of their living resources, and the study, protection and preservation of the marine environment,

Bearing in mind that the achievement of these goals will contribute to the realization of a just and equitable international economic order which takes into account the interest and needs of mankind as a whole and, in particular, the special interest and needs of developing countries, wheter coastal or land-locked,

Desiring by this Convention to develop the principles embodied in resolution 2749 (XXV) of 17 December 1070 in which the General Assembly of the United Nations solemnly eclared inter alia that the area of the se-bed and ocean floor and suboil thereof, beyonds the limits of national juridiction, as well as its resources, are the common heritage of mankind, the exploration and exploitation of which shall be carried out the benefit of mankind as a whole, irrespective of the geographical location of States,

Believing that the codification and progessive development of the law of the sea ahieved in this Convention will contribute to the strengthjening of peace, security, c0-operation and friendly relations among all nations in conformity with the principles of justice and equalrights and will promote the economic and social advancement of all peoples of the world, inacoordance with the Purposes and Principles of the United Nastions ad set forth in the charter,

Article 2

Legal status of the territorial sea, of the air space over the territorial sea and of its bed and subsoil

1. The sovereignity of a coatal States extend, beyond its land territory and internal waters and, in the case of an archipelagic waters, to an adjacent belt of sea described as territorial sea.

2. This sovereignity extend to the air space over the territorial sea as well as to its bed and subsoil.

3. The sovereignity over the territorial sea is exercised subject to this Convention and to other rules of international law.


Article 3

Breadth of the territorial sea

Every state has the right to establish the breadth of its territorial sea up to a limit not exceeding 12 nautical miles, measured from baselines determined in accordance with this Convention.

Article 4

Outer limit of the territorial sea

The outer limit of the territorial sea is the line every point of which is at a distance from the nearest point of the baseline equal to the breadth of the territorial sea.

Article 5

Normal baseline

Except where otherwise provided in this Convention, the normal baseline for measure right the breadth of the territorial sea is the low-water line along the coast as marked on large map scale charts officially recognized by the coastal state.

Article 6


In the case of island situated on attols or of islands having fringing reefs, the baseline for measuring the breadth of the territorial sea is the seaward low-waterline of the reef, as shown by the appropriate symbol on charts officially recognized by the coastal state.

Article 7

Straight baselines

1. In locatlities where the coastline is deeply indented and cut into, or if there is a fringe of island along the coast in its immediate vicinity, the method of straight baselines joining appropriate points may be employed in drawing the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured.

2. where because of the presence of a delta and other natural conditions the coastline is highly unstable, the appropriate points may be selected along the furthest seaward extend of the low-water line and, not with standing subsequent regression of the low-water line, the straight baseline shall remain effective until changed by the coastal State in accordance with this Convention.

3. The drawing of straight baseline must not depart to any appreciable extebnd from the general direction of the coast, and the sea areas lying within the lines must be sufficiently closely linked to the land domain to be subject to the regime of itnternal waters.

4. Straight baselines shall not be drawn to and from low-tide elevations, unless light houses or similiar instalations which are permanently above sea level have the lines been bulit on them or except in instances where the drawing of baselines to and from such elevations has received the general international recognition.

5. Where the method of straight baselines is applicable under paragraph 1, account may be taken, in determining particular baselines, of economic interest peculiar to the region concerned, the reality and the importances of which are clearly evidenced by long usage.

6. The system of straight baseline may not be applied by a state in such a manner as to cut off the territorial sea of another state from the high seas or an exchesive economic zone.

Article 8

Internal waters

1. Except as provided in part IV, waters on the landward side of the baseline of the territorial sea from part of the internal waters of the state.

2. Where the establihsment of a straight baseline in accordance with the method set worth in article 7 has effect of enclosing as internal waters areas which had not previously been considered as such a right of innocent passage as provided in this Convention shall exist in those waters.

Article 9

Mouth of rivers

If a river flows directly into the sea, the baseline shall be a straight line across the mouth of the river between points on the low-water line of its banks.

Article 10


1. This article relates only to bays the coast of which belong to a single State.

2. For the purpose of this convention, a bay is a well-marked indentation whose penetration is in such proportion to the width of its mouth as to contain land-locked waters and constitute more than a mere curvature of the coast. An indentation shall not, however, be regarded as a bay unless its area is a large as, or larger than, that of the semi-circle whose diameter is a line drawn accross the mouth of that indentation.

3. For the purposed of measurement, the are of an indentation is that lying between the low-water mark around the shore of the indentation and a line joining the low-water mark of its natural entrance points. Where, because of the presence of island, an indentation has more than one mouth, the semi-curcle shall be drawn on a line as long as the sum total of the lengths of the lines across the different mouths. Islands within an indentation shall be included as if they were part of the water of the indentation.

4. If the distance between the low-water marks of the natural entrance points of a bay does not exceed 24 nautical miles, a closing line may be drawn between these two low-water marks, and the waters enclosed teherby shall be considered as internal waters.

5. Where the distance between the low-water marks of the natural entrance points of a bays exceed 24 nautical miles, a straight baseline of 24 nautical miles shalll be drawn within the bay in suh a manner as to enclose the maximum area of the water that that is possible with a line of that length.

6. The foregoing provisions do not apply to so-called “historic” bays, or in any case where the system of straight baselines provided for in articles 7 is applied.

Article 11


For the purpose of delimiting the territorial sea, the outermost permanent harbour works which form an integral part of the harbour system are regarded ad forming part of the coast. Off-shore installations and artificial islands shall not be considered as permanent harbour works.

Article 12

RoadsteadsRoadstead whisch are normaaly used for the loading, unloading and anchoring of ships, and which would otherwise be situated wholly or partly outside the outer limit of the territorial sea, are included in the territorial sea.

Article 13

1. A low tide elevation is a naturally formed area of  land which surrounded by and above water at low tide but submerged at high tide. Where a low-tide elevation is situated wholly or partly at a distance not exceeding the breadth of the territorial sea from the mainland or an isaland, the low-water line on that elevation may be used as the baseline for measuring the breadth of the territorial sea.

2. Where a low-tide elevation is wholly situated at a distanced exceeding the breadth of the territorial sea from the mainland or an island, it has no territorial sea of its own.

Article 14

Combination of methods for determining baselines

The coastal State may determine baselines in turn by any of the methodes provided or in the foregoing articles to suit different conditions.

Article 15

Detemination of  the territorial sea between States with oppositee or adjacent coasts

Where the coasts of two States are opposite or adjacent to each other, neither of the state is entitled, failing agreement between them to the countrary, to extend its territorial beyond the median line every point of which is wequidistant from the nearest points on the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial seas of each of the two states is measured. Are above provision does not apply, however, where it is necessary b reason of historic title or other special circumstances to delimit the territorial seas of the two states in a way which is at variance therewith.

Article 16

Charts and of geogrophical co-ordinates

1. The baselines for measuring the breadth of the territorial sea determined in accordances with articles 7, 9, and 10, or the limits derived therefrom, and the lines of delemitation drawn in accordance with article 12 and 15 shall be shown on charts of scale or scales adequate for ascertaining their position. Alternatively, a list of geographical co-ordinates of points, specifying the geodetic datum, may be substituted.

2. The coastal State shall give due publicity to such charts or list of geographical co-ordinates and shall deposit a copy of each such chart or list with the Secretary-General of the United Nations.



Article 17

Right of innocent passage

Subject to this Convention, ships of all States, wheter coastal or land-locked, enjoy the right of innocent passages trough the territorial sea.

Article 18

Meaning of passages
