The international court of justice acknowledged the existence of its own jurisdiction to consider the matter of the application and interpretation of the International Convention for the suppression of the financing of terrorism and the International Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination.

The decision was read out by the presiding judge at the court hearing on Friday in the Hague (Netherlands).

Thus, the court refused to consider objections of the Russian Federation about the presence of the court’s jurisdiction in this case.
