Excerpt – The International Court of Justice (ICJ) redrew the maritime boundary between Somalia and Kenya in what it considered to be an equitable solution to the border dispute in the Indian Ocean.

The new maritime border was widely viewed as closer to the line proposed by Somalia. The Court unanimously found that there was “no agreed maritime boundary” between Kenya and Somalia.

Last week, Kenya reneged its recognition of the Court’s jurisdiction and, as such, the country did not have representation at today’s session.

Somalia had filed the case back in 2014, arguing that the maritime border should follow the direction of the land border.
