We are not aware of any plans by Mauritius for a resolution at the next UN General Assembly
regarding the resettlement of Chagos islanders to be referred to the International Court of Justice
). On 17 May the Prime Minister
of Mauritius expressed to the Mauritian Parliament his intention to seek a referral by the UN General Assembly to the ICC this autumn, in order to obtain an advisory opinion in relation to sovereignty of the British Indian Ocean Territory
). We would not support any such resolution as we are in no doubt about British sovereignty over BIOT.
