Somalia took Kenya to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) over claims that Kenya has encroached on its maritime.
The UN International Court of Justice announced on Thursday that it will hold hearings between 19-23 September, 2016.
Somalia has complained that Kenya wrongly has encroached parts of its territorial waters in the Indian Ocean, areas Somalia say are potentially rich in gas and oil reserves.
The disputed area stretches over 100, 000 square kilometers. In its application to the court, Somalia, which filed the case in 2014, said the two countries “disagree about the location of the maritime boundary,” according to the tribunal, and that diplomatic negotiations “have failed to resolve this disagreement.”
Somalia refused Kenya’s plea to settle the dispute out of court.
