    [01] International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea - Interview

    By Emilia Christofi

    Nicosia, Sep 19 (CNA) -- The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) acts as a peace mechanism to ensure resolution of disputes about the law of the sea and Cyprus can prove to be of valuable assistance with its great maritime experience.

    ITLOS President, Thomas A. Mensah, told CNA during a short visit to the island at the invitation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the Hamburg-based court depends on the support from all governments, "and Cyprus is one of the key countries."
