The Court found that there was no agreed maritime boundary between the Federal Republic of Somalia and the Republic of Kenya and proceeded to determine the course of that maritime boundary. The Court also rejected the claim made by the Federal Republic of Somalia concerning the allegation that the Republic of Kenya, by its conduct in the disputed area, had violated its international obligations.
