China, USA, Russia and the Code of Conduct in the Arctic
China violates key norms and provisions of the international law of the sea and at the same time advocates its peremptory application to the Arctic. Meanwhile, the USA cannot agree with the navigation guidelines established by Russia with respect to the Northern Sea Route. For Russia, this is a matter of its own security. Will the US agree to some kind of Code of Conduct for the Arctic? Is Moscow ready to support the Arctic ambitions of the Middle Kingdom?
