    before the International Court of Justice

    Hi! What is the exact meaning of the sentence in bold? It is about a political dispute which was to be sent to international Court of Justice.
    We reluctant to see introduction of new pointsin this agreement at this stage unless they are absolutely necessary. In this connection, we hope British could agree to drop phrase at end of second paragraph of Preamble which reads as follows: “The preliminary issue of jurisdiction in which was before the International Court of Justice in June,1952.”
    Thanks very much.

    You have been asked more than once to sort out the spacing when you cut and paste.

    Pars, there are spaces missing in these strings: "thisconnection", "ofjurisdiction", "secondparagraph", "June,1952".

    [EDIT] Finding any remaining missing spaces is left as an exercise for the reader.

    Hi! excuse me, please! When I post my questions, all things are right, but after that nothing is correct. I do not know its reasons. After saving the post, I checked all words and nothing went wrong. But now, !!!. I edit them. I beg your pardon. I am not reckless. Be sure about this.

    You missed pointsin.

    Now that you know this happens, you will have to proofread your text after posting and edit it accordingly.

    Re: before the International Court of Justice

    I sympathise, pars.

    No matter how many times I proofread my posts, and then edit them after submission, I probably hold the UE record for the number of posts edited by ems, Rover and other mods. I just about survive because I answer questions, usually (I like to think) reasonably helpfully, despite my typos.

    If you ask questions, you need to remember that you are asking volunteers to give up some of their free time to try to help you. So, if you want people to give some of their time to help you, please give some of your time to help them by ensuring that your posts are as blunder-free as possible.

    ps. nobdoy epxects yuo to be prefect, butdo checkyourspacing,

    Re: before the International Court of Justice

    A bug in the forum's editor removes some space characters from text which you paste from your clipboard. You have to proofread every post which you paste in from another source.

    This is not your fault, but once you are aware of the problem, you should take the extra time to make sure your posts are correct.

    Re: before the International Court of Justice

    Since others have extensively pointed out your sins, I will take no part in dehumanizing you any further. However, not through your fault of course, the paragraph is badly written. It misses critical articles, verbs among other things. Can you tell us what is the source of this paragraph?

    Hi! It is an excerpt from a political telegram sent by the US department of state to the embassy of this country in ran in 1953. It deals with a lawsuit between Iran ad England on an oil dispute.

    Re: before the International Court of Justice

    If you had told us it was from a telegram in post #1, that would have made it clear why many small words had been omitted.
