The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 44, paragraphs 3 and 4, and Article 79, paragraphs 3 and 4, of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court filed in this case on 4 March 1991 by the United States of America,

Having regard to the Order of 18 December 1991 extending to 9 June 1992 the time-limit for the filing by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran of a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections raised by the United States of America;

Whereas, by a letter dated 2 June 1992, received in the Registry on that same day, the Agent of Iran, for the reasons therein set out, requested the Court to extend by three months the time-limit for the filing of a written statement of observations and submissions on the preliminary objections raised by the United States of America;

Whereas, on 2 June 1992, a copy of the aforementioned letter was transmitted to the Agent of the United States of America, who was at the same time informed that the President of the Court had fixed 5 June 1992 as the time-limit within which the United States of America might state its views on that request;[p 226]

Whereas, by a letter dated 3 June 1992, received in the Registry on 4 June 1992, the Agent of the United States of America informed the Court that his Government "has no objection to this request, on the understanding (as before) that the United States will receive the same amount of time to prepare a response to the observations and submissions of the Islamic Republic of Iran",

Extends to 9 September 1992 the time-limit for the written observations and submissions of the Islamic Republic of Iran on the preliminary objections raised by the United States of America; and

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 June, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-two, in three copies, one of which will be placed in the archives of the Court and the others transmitted to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Government of the United States of America, respectively.
