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 Order made by the Court on 26 October 1990 recording (inter alia) the agreement of the Parties that the proceedings in the present case had in effect been instituted by two successive notifications of the Special Agreement constituted by the "Framework Agree-ment" between the two Parties of 31 August 1989, and that the procedure in the case should be determined on the basis of the notifications and communications from the Parties referred to in the Order, pursuant to Article 46, paragraph 2, of the Rules of Court;

Whereas by that Order the Court decided that each Party should file a Memorial and Counter-Memorial within the same time-limit, and 26 August 1991 was fixed as time-limit for the Memorials;

Whereas the Memorials of the two Parties were duly filed within that time-limit;

Whereas at a meeting between the President of the Court and the Agents of the Parties held on 26 August 1991 the Parties agreed that a time-limit of seven months would be appropriate for the filing of the Counter-Memorials; [p 45]

Taking into account the agreement of the Parties,

Fixes 27 March 1992 as time-limit for the Counter-Memorials; and

Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.
