Sovereignty of the British Indian Ocean Territory is clearly a matter for the UK and Mauritius to resolve ourselves. Taking this bilateral issue to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) through the General Assembly is an inappropriate use of the ICJ mechanism. This is reflected in the fact that over half of General Assembly members did not vote in favour of the resolution. We will continue to work with EU and other partners in order to present the UK's position effectively at the International Court of Justice.</p> more like this
