Malaysia and Singapore take dispute to the Hague
AFAR
2/9/2003



Neighboring countries Malaysia and Singapore have agreed to take their disputes over the islet that Singapore calls Pedra Branca and Malaysia calls Pulau Batu Puteh to the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

The intentions are two-fold. Besides characterizing the way other issues between the two close trading partners are resolved, hopes are to set an example for the world in the way they move forward.
