[p.163]
The President of the International Court of Justice,

having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 62 of the Rules of Court;

Having regard to the Application filed in the Registry on October 16th, 1957, whereby the Government of Israel instituted proceedings against the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria;

Having regard to the Order of November 26th, 1957, fixing June 2nd, 1958, as the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of the Government of Israel;

Having regard to the Order of January 27th, 1958, fixing December 9th, 1958, as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of Bulgaria;
Having regard to the Memorial filed by the Government of Israel within the time-limit fixed;

Whereas on December 6th, 1958, the Government of Bulgaria filed a document setting forth certain preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court, contending that the Application is [p 164]
inadmissible and reserving the right to develop other contentions relating to admissibility and to jurisdiction should the occasion arise;

Whereas, by a telegram of December 8th, 1958, received in the Registry on December 9th, the Government of Bulgaria submitted in the alternative certain additional objections to the jurisdiction of the Court;

Whereas both these documents reached the Registry within the time-limit fixed for the filing of the Counter-Memorial;

Whereas, accordingly, by virtue of the provisions of Article 62, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, the proceedings on the merits are suspended and a time-limit has to be fixed for the presentation by the other Party of a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections;

Fixes February 3rd, 1959, as the time-limit within which the Government of Israel may present a written statement of its observations and submissions on the objections raised by the Government of Bulgaria.

Done in French and in English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this seventeenth day of December, one thousand nine hundred and fifty-eight, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of Israel and to the Government of the People's Republic of Bulgaria, respectively.

(Signed) Helge Klaestad,
President.
