London, Jan 30 (ANI): The Marshall Islands have sued India, Pakistan and Britain, and will seek to persuade the UN’s highest court to take up a lawsuit, accusing the countries of failing to halt the nuclear arms race.

According to The Guardian, the international court of justice, founded in 1945 to rule on legal disputes between nations, announced late on Friday, dates for separate hearings for the three cases between March 7 and March 16.

In the cases brought against India and Pakistan, the court will examine whether the tribunal based in The Hague is competent to hear the lawsuits.

The hearing involving Britain will be devoted to “preliminary objections” raised by London.

A decision will be made at a later date as to whether the cases can proceed. (ANI)
