[p.189]
The International Court of Justice,

composed as above, after deliberation,

having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 37 of the Rules of Court,

Makes the following Order:

Having regard to the Order of 20 June i960, fixing 5 December 1960 as the time-limit for the filing of the Observations and Submissions of the Belgian Government with regard to the Preliminary Objections raised by the Spanish Government; [p 190]

Whereas, by a letter dated 28 October 1960, the Agent for the Belgian Government requested a four months extension of that time-limit;

Whereas, by a letter dated 2 November 1960, the letter of the Agent for the Belgian Government was communicated to the Agent for the Spanish Government, who was asked to make known the views of that Government on the request of the Agent for the Belgian Government;

Whereas, by a letter dated 7 November 1960, the Agent for the Spanish Government stated that that Government, placing itself entirely in the hands of the Court as to the fixing of an extension of the time-limit, raised no objection to the Belgian request and would regard it as fitting that the Court should find it possible to accede to it;

The Court

Extends to 5 April 1961 the time-limit for the filing of the Observations and Submissions of the Belgian Government with regard to the Preliminary Objections raised by the Spanish Government.

Done in French and in English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this eleventh day of November, one thousand nine hundred and sixty, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Belgian Government and to the Spanish Government, respectively.

(Signed) Helge Klaestad,
President.
