Judge Yusuf, President of the International Court of Justice:
On 28 September 2018, the State of Palestine instituted proceedings against the United States of America with respect to a dispute concerning alleged violations of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 18 April 1961. It is recalled that, on 5 July 2018, Palestine had filed a declaration pursuant to Security Council resolution 9 (1946), whereby it accepted the jurisdiction of the Court for the settlement of disputes under article I of the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations Concerning the Compulsory Settlement of Disputes, to which the State of Palestine acceded on 22 March 2018. In its application, the State of Palestine contends that it flows from the Vienna Convention that the diplomatic mission of a sending State must be established on the territory of the receiving State.
