Contentions by Kenya Court lacks jurisdiction as a result of one of Kenya’s reservationsto its optional clause declaration Disputes in regard to which parties have agreed "to haverecourse to some other method or methods of settlement” excluded from the Court’s jurisdiction MOU is an agreement on such other method of settlement Relevant provisions of UNCLOS on dispute settlement also amount to agreement on method of settlement.

Analysis by the Court Legal status of MOU under international law Signing of MOU and registration with United Nations Secretariat MOU a written document recording Parties’agreement on certain points governed by international law Provision addressing entry into force indicative of instrument’s binding character Somali Minister for National Planning duly authorized as signatory MOU to enter into force upon signature No ratification requirement in MOU MOU is a valid treaty that entered into force upon signature and is binding on Parties under international law.

Interpretation of MOURules of interpretation in Articles31 and 32 of Vienna Convention Ordinary meaning, context and object and purpose to be considered as a whole Role of CLCS in process of delineation of outer limits of continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles Distinction between delineation and delimitation.

Title of MOU Meaning of individual paragraphs Title and first five paragraphs indicative of a purposeMOU a no-objection agreement enabling CLCS to make recommendations despite existence of a dispute Whether sixth paragraph of MOU contains agreed dispute settlement methodSixth paragraph relating only to continental shelfDelineation of outer limits of continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles without prejudice to maritime boundary delimitation Similarity in language between Article 83, paragraph 1, of UNCLOS and sixth paragraph of MOU Sixth paragraph did not prevent Parties from engaging in negotiations in good faith to reach agreement No temporal restriction contained in sixth paragraph in that regard Sixth paragraph not prescribing a method of dispute settlement Parties did not consider themselves bound to wait for CLCS recommendations before engaging in negotiations Interpretation confirmed by travaux préparatoires and circumstances in which MOU was concludedInitiative of Special Representative of UN Secretary-General for Somalia Assistance provided by Norway Conclusion that MOU not an agreement "to haverecourse to some other method of methods of settlement” within meaning of Kenya’s reservation toits optional clause declaration Kenya’s reservation not applicable.

encompasses agreement to Court’s jurisdiction resulting from optional clause declarations Interpretation confirmed by travaux préparatoires Procedure before the Court to apply "in lieu”of procedures under Section 2 of Part XV Part XV does not provide for "other method” of dispute settlement within meaning of Kenya’s reservation Finding that the Court hasjurisdiction gives effect to intent reflected in Kenya’s declaration Present case does not, by virtue of Part XV, fall outside scope of Parties’ consent to the Court’s jurisdiction.

Conclusion that neither MOU nor Part XV of UNCLOS within scope of Kenya’s reservationto its optional clause declaration Kenya’s preliminary objection to jurisdiction rejected.

*Kenya’s second preliminary objection.

Contention by Kenya that Application is inadmissible for two reasons First argument that under MOU Parties agreed to delimit their boundary by negotiation only after CLCS review of their submissions Previous finding by the Court that MOU did not contain such agreement Premise of objection rejected Second argument that Somalia’s withdrawal of consent to CLCSconsideration was in breach of MOU Invocation of clean hands doctrine Finding of the Court that admissibility of an application not per se affected by breach of a treaty at issue in a case No need to address in general question of whether conduct of Applicant might render application inadmissible Kenya’s preliminary objection to admissibility rejected.

THE COURT,
composed as above,
after deliberation,
delivers the following Judgment:

-7-

1. On 28 August 2014, the Government of the Federal Republic of Somalia (hereinafter"Somalia”) filed in the Registry of the Court an Application instituting proceedings against theRepublic of Kenya (hereinafter "Kenya”) concerning a dispute in relation to "the establishment ofthe single maritime boundary between Somalia and Kenya in the Indian Ocean delimiting the territorial sea, exclusive economic zone . . . and continental shelf, including the continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles”.

In its Application, Somalia seeks to found the jurisdiction of the Court on the declarations made, pursuant to Article 36, paragraph 2, of the Statute of the Court, by Somalia on 11 April 1963 and by Kenya on 19 April 1965.

2. In accordance with Article 40, paragraph 2, of the Statute of the Court, the Registrar immediately communicated the Application to the Government of Kenya; and, under paragraph 3 of that Article, all other States entitled to appear before the Court were notified of the Application.

3. Since the Court included upon the Bench no judge of Kenyan nationality, Kenya proceeded to exercise its right conferred by Article 31, paragraph 2, of the Statute to choose a judge ad hoc to sit in the case; it chose Mr. Gilbert Guillaume.

4. By an Order of 16 October 2014, the President fixed 13 July 2015 as the time-limit for the filing of the Memorial of Somalia and 27 May 2016 for the filing of the Counter-Memorial of Kenya. Somalia filed its Memorial within the time-limit so prescribed.

5. On 7 October 2015, within the time-limit set by Article 79, paragraph 1, of the Rules of Court, Kenya raised preliminary objections to the jurisdiction of the Court and to the admissibility of the Application. Consequently, by an Order of 9 October 2015, the Court, noting that, by virtue of Article 79, paragraph 5, of the Rules of Court, the proceedings on the merits were suspended, and taking account of Practice Direction V, fixed 5 February 2016 as the time-limit for the presentation by Somalia of a written statement of its observations and submissions on the preliminary objections raised by Kenya. Somalia filed such a statement within the time-limit so prescribed, and the case thus became ready for hearing in respect of the preliminary objections.

6. Pursuant to the instructions of the Court under Article 43 of the Rules of Court, the Registrar addressed to States parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea the notifications provided for in Article 63, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the Court. In addition, the Registrar addressed to the European Union, which is also party to that Convention, the notification provided for in Article 43, paragraph 2, of the Rules of Court, as adopted on 29 September 2005, and asked that organization whether or not it intended to furnish observations under that provision. In response, the Director-General of the Legal Service of the European Commission indicated that the European Commission, which represents the European Union, did not intend to submit observations in the case.

7. By a communication dated 21January2016, the Government of the Republic of Colombia, referring to Article 53, paragraph 1, of the Rules of Court, asked to be furnished with copies of the pleadings and documents annexed in the case. Having ascertained the views of the Parties in accordance with that same provision, the Court decided, taking into account the objection raised by one Party, that it would not be appropriate to grant that request. By a letter dated 17 March 2016, the Registrar duly communicated that decision to the Government of Colombia and to the Parties.

8. Pursuant to Article 53, paragraph 2, of the Rules of Court, the Court, after ascertaining the views of the Parties, decided that copies of the pleadings and the documents annexed would be made accessible to the public on the opening of the oral proceedings.

9. Public hearings on the preliminary objections raised by Kenya were held from Monday 19 to Friday 23 September 2016, at which the Court heard the oral arguments of:
