UN Registers Turkey/Libyan Maritime Deal- In Accordance With Article 102 of UN Charter- Who Runs the UN?


UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday registered a Turkey-Libya deal on the delimitation of maritime jurisdiction areas in the Mediterranean.

The agreement "has been registered with the Secretariat, in accordance with Article 102 of the Charter of the United Nations," said the certificate of registration dated Wednesday. 

"Every treaty and every international agreement entered into by any Member of the United Nations after the present Charter comes into force shall as soon as possible be registered with the Secretariat and published by it," reads Article 102.

The pact with Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA) was signed Nov. 27, 2019 and passed by Turkey's parliament Dec. 5. 

It took effect Dec. 8 after the two countries published it in their respective official gazettes.

Ankara applied to the UN to register the pact Dec. 12.

The memorandum setting marine jurisdictions rejects unilateral and illegal activities by other regional countries and international firms and aims to protect the rights of both countries.

 Flashback:  The deal between Turkey and Libya was covered in a rather largish two part report


Who runs the UN? -

Article 110

  1. The present Charter shall be ratified by the signatory states in accordance with their respective constitutional processes.
  2. The ratifications shall be deposited with the Government of the United States of America, which shall notify all the signatory states of each deposit as well as the Secretary-General of the Organization when he has been appointed.

 Kind of makes you think....
