[p.9]
The President of the International Court of Justice,

Having regard to Article 48 of the Statute of the Court and to Article 44 of the Rules of Court,
Having regard to the Special Agreement between the two Parties, which was signed in Kuala Lumpur on 31 May 1997 and entered into force on 14 May 1998,

Having regard to the Order of 14 September 1999, whereby the Court, taking account of the agreement of the Parties, extended until 2 July 2000 the time-limit for the filing of a Counter-Memorial by each of the Parties;

Whereas, on 8 May 2000, the Agents of the two Parties addressed to the Court a joint letter worded as follows:

"It is the Parties' position that the current eight month time-limit for the simultaneous filing of the Counter-Memorial does not leave sufficient time for the Parties to address issues which have been raised in each Party's Memorial. Therefore, the Parties have agreed to request jointly a further one month extension for filing the Counter-Memorials to 2 August 2000. In all other respects, the Special Agreement signed by the Parties on 31 May 1997 and notified to the Court on 2 November 1998 remains unchanged, including the date for submission of the Reply.

The Parties would be grateful if the Court would take note of the joint request and thereby modify the Order [of 14 September 1999] [p 10] for the filing of the Parties' Counter-Memorials so as to reflect a filing date of 2 August 2000";

Taking account of the agreement of the Parties,

Extends until 2 August 2000 the time-limit for the filing of a Counter-Memorial by each of the Parties; and

Reserves the subsequent procedure for further decision.

Done in French and in English, the French text being authoritative, at the Peace Palace, The Hague, this eleventh day of May, two thousand, 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 Indonesia and the Government of Malaysia, respectively.

(Signed) Gilbert Guillaume,
President.

(Signed) Philippe Couvreur,
Registrar.
