Naval War College Review


John H. McNeill


During last year’s Washington Summit meetings between President Bush and Soviet President Gorbachev, a historic agreement was signed by which, for the first time, the United States and the Soviet Union registered their mutual accord on a maritime boundary. 1 This new agreement was signed on 1 June 1990 by Secretary of State Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Shevardnadze, and both signatories have been fully applying its provisions since 15June 1990.
