The Court

Joins the Objections raised by the Government of the Kingdom of Norway to the merits in the proceedings instituted by the Application of the Government of the French Republic, filed with the Registry on July 6th, 1955, in order that it may adjudicate in one and the same judgment upon these Objections and, if need be, on the merits;
