2.5.2 Settling disputes

Furthermore, countries are encouraged to consult and cooperate with each other in order to settle any disputes which may arise (see Art. 10, para. 1). In addition to issues of compliance, any disputes concerning the application or interpretation of the treaty may also be brought before the meeting of States Parties. A country participating in the meeting can offer its services to mediate or States Parties may recommend ways to resolve the disagreement (see Art. 10, para. 2).
