The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Articles 44 and 46 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Special Agreement concluded on 23 May 1976 between the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and the Republic of Malta, concerning the continental shelf, notified to the Court on 26 July 1982,

Having regard to the Order of 27 July 1982 fixing 26 April 1983 as the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of each Party;

Whereas the Memorial of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and the Memorial of the Republic of Malta were each filed within the said time-limit;

Whereas Article II, paragraph 2, of the Special Agreement of 23 May 1976 provides (inter alia) for the subsequent pleadings to be submitted to the Court and exchanged within four months after the filing of the Memorials;

Whereas at a meeting with the President of the Court on 26 April 1983 the Agent of each of the two Parties informed him that, notwithstanding the time-limit laid down in the Special Agreement, it was the desire of both Parties that the time-limit for the filing of the Counter-Memorials should be six months after the filing of the Memorials;

Fixes 26 October 1983 as the time-limit for the filing of Counter-Memorials by the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and the Republic of Malta;

Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision. [p 4]
