Response to Ghost Dog (Reply #27)

30. Yes and no.

Both Chile and Argentina claim slices of Antarctica, and those slices overlap on the Antarctic peninsula. The UN panel merely confirmed that the land claims extend to the continental seafloor under the UNCLOS, and didn't rule on the validity of the claims themselves. Those are governed under the Antarctic Treaty, which requires all signatory nations to suspend attempts to enforce their claims against other claimants.

If Argentina tried to prevent Chile from fishing in the EEZ of their Antarctic claim, they would be violating the terms of the Antarctic Treaty. It would be an illegal action if Argentina didn't first formally withdraw from the treaty.
