This is the March 16, 1979 hearing titled "Status of the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea," held before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Clement J. Zablocki: "This committee has had a considerable interest in the negotiations on the United Nation's Third Conference on the Law of the Sea for several years. Those negotiations are surely among the most complex diplomatic efforts in our history. They concern us not only because they hopefully can result in new rules to govern more than 70 percent of the Earth's surface, but because of their relation to seabed mining legislation that has been referred to this committee."
