Abstract:

The United States asserts that China claims rights, territory, and airspace that are not in harmony with the world interpretation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea UNCLOS When challenging these claims or conducting operations in disputed waters, the Combatant Commander must account for the increased risk these operations carry and develop a process to work through or mitigate that risk because conducting these operations is not simply about the proper interpretation and application of the Law of the Sea, but is fundamentally about national security and national policy.
