TEP Ministry of WA Affairs: Official Opinion on "Protection of Airspace"

Opinion on Protection of Airspace
Office of the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs of the East Pacific

The resolution now at Vote, Protection of Airspace, extends the guaranteed territorial rights member states enjoy with regard to land borders and zones of control at sea to the air. Piloted aircraft are subject to the authority of the sovereignty claiming the territory below them whenever in national airspace. In fairness, the resolution's definition of "aircraft" is lacking, resulting in a loophole where autonomous drones are not subject to its regulations. The World Assembly must certainly address this in the future. Even so, the resolution has clear merits with regard to safeguarding the sovereignty of member nations and satisfies the expectations of this ministry. We gently encourage a vote in favor of Protection of Airspace.
