Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean on Friday will meet the International Court of Justice (ICJ) President Peter Tomka, who is paying a visit to Bucharest, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.

This is the first visit paid by a ICJ president to Romania in the history of the Romanian state's relations with the Hague Court, the ministry added.

Tomka will give a conference at the Law College of Bucharest University on the implications of a state's accepting the ICJ compulsory jurisdiction.

The event is part of a range of public debates launched by the Foreign Ministry with respect to Romania's accepting the ICJ compulsory jurisdiction.

The initiative of launching such public debates was announced by Corlatean on the occasion of the High Level Meeting on the rule of law state held in New York on Sept. 24, 2012. The event marking the go-ahead to the debate was held in Bucharest on Feb. 4 and was followed by other conferences organised at Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca (Mach 29), Transilvania University of Brasov (April 12) and Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu (May 31).

The International Court of Justice is the main judicial institution of the United Nations. The Court, in its 100th ruling unanimously pronounced on Feb. 3, 2009 settled the case on the Black Sea Maritime Delimitation (Romania vs Ukraine), giving Romania 9,700 square kilometers of continental shelf and the exclusive economic area, i.e. 79.34 percent of the litigated 12,200 sq km area.
