Bangladesh made an intervention drawing attention to Article 5 which states that there is a principle of common heritage on mankind guiding the Area, Article 136 common heritage of mankind. And now the freedom of the high seas has been included, which has nothing to do with the main aim of the Convention, that is marine biological conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity. It’s parameters are quite different. Equating the freedom of the high seas with the common heritage principle may not be very legally appropriate.
