Read Section 7. SafeGuards and see what you make of it.

Thanks for directing me to that part of the Convention. Section 7 Article 225 seems to be the strongest argument I've seen so far in favor of Ma Ying-jeou's (and the Taipei Times') position.

I discuss my reservations in an update to this post.

I DON'T think that section is an explicit ban against force but I do think it helps set the tone of UNCLOS. (And note that it's Section 7 of Part XII not Part V)
