The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 79 of the Rules of Court,

Having regard to the Application by the Islamic Republic of Iran filed in the Registry of the Court on 2 November 1992, instituting proceedings against the United States of America,

Having regard to the Orders made by the President of the Court on 4 December 1992 and 3 June 1993 fixing and subsequently extending time-limits for the Memorial of the Islamic Republic of Iran and for the Counter-Memorial of the United States of America;

Whereas the Memorial of the Islamic Republic of Iran was filed on 8 June 1993, within the extended time-limit fixed therefor;

Whereas on 16 December 1993, within the extended time-limit fixed for the Counter-Memorial, the United States of America filed certain preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court;

Whereas, accordingly, by virtue of Article 79, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court, the proceedings on the merits are suspended and a time-limit has to be fixed for the presentation by the other Party of a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections; [p 4]

Whereas at a meeting between the President of the Court and the representatives of the Parties, held on 17 January 1994, the Islamic Republic of Iran requested that 1 July 1994 be fixed as the time-limit for such presentation, and the United States of America agreed;

Having taken into account the views of the Parties,

Fixes 1 July 1994 as the time-limit within which the Islamic Republic of Iran may present a written statement of its observations and submissions 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 eighteenth day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-four, 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.
