Sample text

Knowing that the Council could never respond promptly to every act of aggression, they also included an exception for selfdefence. But in addition to the two restrictions of necessity and proportionality recognized under customary law in relation to self-defence, three new restrictions were introduced: a state could act in self-defence only if subject to an ‘armed attack’; acts of self-defence had to be reported immediately to the Council and the right to respond ended as soon as the Council took action.

Here the problem arises that those articles contain a number of terms which, though related to one another, differ considerably in their meaning. Thus notions such as ‘use or threat of force’, ‘threat to the peace’, ‘breach of the peace’, ‘act of aggression’, ‘armed attack’ and ‘aggressive policy’ are used, but do not receive any further explanation in the Charter. Neither legal writings nor state practices have so far clarified these terms beyond doubt. Nor have attempts within the framework of the UN yet led to a satisfactory interpretation.
