Secretary of State John Kerry expressed support Tuesday for “a global
structure” within the United Nations to enforce regulations on how the
oceans are managed and protected. “I know people resist and hate the
idea,” he said. “Each country wants to exercise its own sovereignty, but
that’s not the way the ocean works.”
