[p.560]

The President of the Chamber of the International Court of Justice formed to deal with the case concerning Delimitation of the Maritime Boundary in the Gulf of Maine Area between Canada and the United States of America,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 18, paragraph 3, Article 44, Article 46 and Article 92 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Special Agreement concluded on 29 March 1979, and subsequently altered, between Canada and the United States of America to submit to a chamber of the Court the delimitation of the maritime boundary in the Gulf of Maine area,

Having regard to the Order of 28 July 1982 extending to 27 September 1982 the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of each Party;

Whereas the Memorials of Canada and of the United States of America were each filed within the said time-limit;

Whereas Article VI, paragraph 1, of the Special Agreement of 29 March 1979 records inter alia the agreement of the Parties that Counter-Memorials should be submitted not later than six months after the filing of the Memorials;

Whereas by a letter to the Registrar of the Court dated 27 September [p 561] 1982 the Agent of Canada requested that this time-limit be extended to ten months;

Whereas by a letter of the same date the Agent of the United States of America informed the Registrar that the views of his Government in this respect would be communicated later, and by a letter delivered to the Registrar on 20 October 1982 he indicated that the United States did not object to a delay if reasonably required to file the Counter-Memorials;

Whereas by a letter of 20 October 1982 the Agent of Canada informed the Registrar that he abided by his original request;

Fixes 28 June 1983 as the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorials of Canada and of the United States of America;

Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.

Done in English and in French, the English text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this fifth day of November, one thousand nine hundred and eighty-two, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court, and the others transmitted to the Government of Canada and to the Government of the United States of America, respectively.

(Signed) Roberto Ago,
President of the Chamber.

(Signed) Santiago Torres Bernárdez,
Registrar.
