1 Unless one supposes that resolution 748 (1992) has as its object, or effect, not to withdraw a right from an Applicant State, but to prevent the exercise, by the Court itself, of the judicial function with which it has been invested by the Charter, in which case one might be led to ponder seriously over the lawfulness of that resolution, even at this stage of provisional measures. It would, indeed, be manifestly incompatible with the Charter for an organ of the United Nations to prevent the Court from accomplishing its mission, or for it actually to place the Court in a state of subordination which would be contrary to the principle of separation and independence of the judicial from the executive power, within the United Nations.
