Top UN court rejects Marshall Islands nuclear case against India, Pakistan

HE HAGUE: The UN’s highest court on Wednesday threw out an epic case brought by the tiny Marshall Islands against India, Pakistan for allegedly failing to halt the nuclear arms race.

The UN’s highest court Wednesday threw out a bid by tiny Marshall Islands to sue Pakistan for “failing to halt the nuclear arms race”, moments after rejecting a similar case against India.

“The court upholds the objection to jurisdiction raised by Pakistan based on the absence of a dispute between the two parties,” judge Ronny Abraham told the International Court of Justice in The Hague, and “cannot proceed to the merits of the case”
