‘I could not be a traitor to Edward, for I was never his subject.’
- William Wallace
The establishment of a sovereign and independent State, the free association or integration with an independent State or the emergence into any other political status freely determined by a people constitute modes of implementing the right of self-determination by that people.
Every State has the duty to refrain from any forcible action which deprives peoples in the elaboration of the present principle of their right to self-determination and freedom and independence.
