PS Kamau: Gov’t Won’t Recognise ICJ Ruling on Kenya-Somalia Maritime Case

Nairobi (SD) – The Kenyan government announced today that it will not recognize any decision by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) pending a decision next week.

Kenyan Foreign Affairs Minister Macharia Kamau says Kenya has already withdrawn from the maritime court case.

“Kenya won’t recognise a ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the maritime case with Somalia”, Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Macharia Kamau told reporters today in Nairobi.

Kamau complained that the court was clearly biased and therefore could not be trusted, suggesting that Kenya believes the dispute should be resolved through peace talks.

“The case is an attempt by Somalia to infringe on Kenya’s territorial integrity, which dates back to 1969,” he said.

The ICJ and the Somali government have not responded to Kenya’s allegations.

The ruling on next Tuesday by the ICJ, is expected to end Somalia’s 2014 maritime dispute case with Kenya.
