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 in 1953. It is an excerpt from a political telegram with a special shortened style. Of course, I had asked this question before, without receiving any appropriate answer, due to lack of satisfactory explanation. (I will edit the text)
We reluctant to see introduction of new points in 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.
