[p.6]
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 28 July 1964, fixing 1 July 1965 as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of Spain; [p7]

Whereas, in a letter dated 29 May 1965, received and filed in the Registry on 31 May 1965, the Agent for the Government of Spain set out the grounds on which the Spanish Government felt itself obliged to request an extension of this time-limit to 31 December 1965;

Whereas, on 31 May 1965, a certified true copy of the aforementioned letter was transmitted to the Agent for the Government of Belgium who was asked to make known the views of his Government on the request;

Whereas, in a letter dated 4 June 1965, the Agent for the Government of Belgium set out the reasons for which the Belgian Government considered that an extension of the time-limit was not justified;
Whereas, by a letter dated 10 June 1965, a certified true copy of which was duly communicated to the Agent for the Government of Belgium, the Agent for the Government of Spain stated that he was authorized on behalf of his Government to give an assurance that it undertook firmly to adhere to 31 December 1965 as the final date for filing its Counter-Memorial,

The Court,

having thus ascertained the views of the Parties,

extends to 31 December 1965 the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of the Government of Spain;

Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.

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

President.
