The need for U.S. participation in the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea has long been connected with the situation development in the Arctic area. In recent years, the turn of U.S. foreign policy priorities to Asia-Pacific region significantly reduced this dependence. Acceptance of the Convention obligations, with respect to the outer limits of the continental shelf and its resources extraction, is becoming more foreign to national interests. The U.S. policy towards the Arctic is changing step-by-step to maximum regionalization of all the problems and issues related to the use of Arctic space and resources.
