Seal of the International Court of Justice

The International Court of Justice (ICJ; French: Cour internationale de justice; CIJ), sometimes known as the World Court, is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations. It settles disputes between states in accordance with international law and gives advisory opinions on international legal issues. The ICJ is the only international court that adjudicates general disputes between countries, with its rulings and opinions serving as primary sources of international law.

Quotes[edit]

Both Parties shall refrain from any action which might aggravate or extend the dispute before the Court or make it more difficult to resolve.
