The Treaty of Antarctica, signed on December 1, 1959 by countries that claimed ownership of Antarctica, pledged to halt their intentions to take their quotas indefinitely in order to allow for scientific research among all Countries.
The treaty officially entered into force on June 23, 1961.
The original signatories were the 12 countries active in Antarctica during the International Geophysical Year (IGY) of 1957–58.
The twelve countries that had significant interests in Antarctica at the time were: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, France, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
These countries had established over 55 Antarctic stations for the IGY.
The treaty was a diplomatic expression of the operational and scientific co-operation that had been achieved “on the ice”, which ended the dispute over the Antarctic region by giving it the status of “neutral zone”.
The Antarctic Convention, which expires in 2048, prohibits the exploration and extraction of mineral resources and energy resources, or in its coastal waters.
The Convention permits the exercise of scientific activity only.
Countries parties to the Convention undertook to temporarily refrain from raising the issue of the right to own areas south of the latitude 60.
However, although the technologies available now are not sufficient and don’t allow deep underwater extraction work in which the oil and natural gas reserves are located in the Antarctic region, the silent conflict to prove the right to as many fields as possible is accompanied by the search for historical and geological evidence on This right has been going on for many years.
For example, Indian scientists note that the southern part of the Indian subcontinent and the continental plateau of the eastern part of Antarctica formed 100 years ago one continent.
Besides India, China, South Korea, Belgium and Estonia are deploying and operating scientific stations in Antarctica!
Russia, which has carried out its scientific activity in the South Pole in the so-called “milestones” mode by the Russian launch of Russian names on a number of mountain peaks in this continent.
The United Kingdom also claims its right in a vast area of the Antarctic frozen area of 1 million square kilometers.
Experts also assume that British scientific missions sent several years ago discovered large reserves of oil, gas and mineral wealth within a 350-mile South Atlantic Ocean region.
It is believed that the main motive behind Britain’s ambition to start investing in Antarctica is, in particular, Russia’s claim to its right in some Arctic regions in the North of the globe and a new round of global resource conflict.
Experts believe that these allegations have implicated Britain in a very embarrassing situation because it has signed along with some forty other countries the Antarctic Convention banning the division of Antarctica.
The Cold War, which in one way or another silently takes place on the South Pole to control its inherent wealth, began more than half a century ago with the outbreak of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States.
An American expedition in the Antarctic, led by Admiral Richard Board, An aircraft carrier, to an attack by strange machines resembling flying dishes in 1947, launched from under the surface of the water, the attackers were able to drown two US warships and the downing of a warplane, forcing the US mission to flee.
In fact, the attack was only an intelligence operation carried out by the Soviet intelligence, according to a number of Russian researchers who participated in the expeditions that the Soviet Union sent to the regions of the poles of the North and South.
Today there are several stations in the South Pole, such as Britain, the United States, China, Russia, Japan, Argentina, Chile and South Africa.
Although the duration of the Convention is 100 years according to its text, while preventing any exploration or exploration of the wealth of this continent, but the missions coming from all these countries, without exception, are engaged in the exploration of wealth more than the exercise of scientific research there, the Japanese announcement of huge quantities of natural gas in the bottom of the Antarctic Ocean.
Perhaps the most pressing minds of Washington today are how to ignite a new kind of arms race game method, similar to the arm race, which US Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars game was, the Soviet Union’s involvement in Afghanistan and its economy until it reached the brink of collapse at the beginning 1990s, the United States is seeking to enter the race for energy, a more powerful weapon that can be put in the face of Russia, which now the main clean energy supply market, which imports the largest share of the European continent.
Without a doubt, regardless of being committed to the Antarctic agreement, where, it’s become fact that the US administration, which is now renowned for its talent to withdraw from international agreements and treaties under illusions and arguments, is no doubt that the Trump administration may soon withdraw of the agreement, and start the war to control the wealth of Antarctica, to push Russia to enter a race that drains capabilities, and may lead to the Russian economy collapse, just as it happened with the Soviet Union.
The United States is now aware that the repetition of what happened in the past to topple Russia has become very difficult under current international changes.
The United States knows that Russia’s real economic pillar lies in the energy market, and therefore Russia must be depleted in this respect.
Any exploration and extraction of wealth on the Antarctic would cost hundreds of billions of dollars in addition to a very expensive infrastructure, with the necessary infrastructure for both assembly, processing and transport, all of which would require considerable costs plus a considerable amount of time, all theoretically not feasible Economically, the actual goal is to create an atmosphere of confusion and instability in the global energy markets and Russia’s exhaustion to bring it to the stage of economic collapse, certainly accompanied by the return of the old scenarios of targeting Russia internally.
Also, we must not forget the climate change threat that will cause the exploration and extraction of wealth from the Antarctic, which will increase the melting of ice and rising sea levels in the Earth, which will cause an environmental disaster, Europe will be one of the largest affected by along with countries that have no power.
All this is only for the sake of serving some dirty minds and project led by a handful of lunatics on the head of state that leads the “free world”.
