Having regard to the request for the indication of provisional measures submitted by Paraguay on 3 April 1998 and to the Order made by the Court on 9 April 1998, by which it indicated provisional measures,

Having regard to the Orders of 9 April 1998 and 8 June 1998, by which [p 427] the Vice-President of the Court, acting as President, fixed and subsequently extended the time-limits for the filing of written pleadings on the merits, and having regard to the Memorial filed by Paraguay on 9 October 1998;

Whereas, by a letter of 2 November 1998, filed in the Registry that same day, the Agent of Paraguay informed the Court that his Government wished to discontinue the proceedings with prejudice, and accordingly requested that the case be removed from the List;

Whereas a copy of this letter was immediately communicated to the Government of the United States, which was informed that the senior judge, acting pursuant to Articles 13, paragraph 3, and 89, paragraphs 2 and 3, of the Rules of Court, had fixed 30 November 1998 as the time-limit within which the United States could state whether it opposed the discontinuance;

Whereas, by a letter of 3 November 1998, a copy of which was filed in the Registry that same day, the Agent of the United States informed the Court that his Government concurred in Paraguay's discontinuance of the proceedings with prejudice, and in its request that the case be removed from the List,

Places on record the discontinuance by the Republic of Paraguay of the proceedings instituted by the Application filed on 3 April 1998; and

Orders that the case be removed from the List.

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