Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - NAIROBI — Kenya has said it will not recognise next week’s expected ruling by the International Court of Justice on the maritime border dispute with Somalia, BBC reported.

In a hard-hitting statement, Kenya’s foreign affairs ministry said the judgement "will be the culmination of a flawed judicial process" that was bias.

Kenya withdrew from the hearing earlier this year, questioning the fairness of the process, which concerns a 62,000 sq miles (160,000 sq km) triangle in the Indian Ocean.

The area is thought to be rich in oil and gas.

The dispute is at the heart of a diplomatic row between the neighbours.

"The filing of a case against Kenya at the court, and the court’s assumption of jurisdiction where it had none, are demonstrative of new tactics of using pseudo-judicial processes to undermine territorial integrity," Kenya's foreign ministry said.

Somalia brought the case in 2014, saying the maritime frontier should follow on in the same direction as the land border, while Kenya argues that it has always been taken in a horizontal line from the point where the two countries meet at the coast.

The ICJ will deliver its judgement on 12 October.
