Whether the Court could adjudicate on the merits of Cameroon's complaint that the United Kingdom breached its obligations under the Trusteeship Agreement for the Territory of the Cameroons under British Administration (‘Trusteeship Agreement“) considering that in 1961, the General Assembly terminated the Trusteeship Agreement with respect to the Northern Cameroons, and thereafter no member of the United Nations could any longer claim any of the rights which might have been originally granted by the Trusteeship Agreement.

Whether there was any legal dispute between Cameroon and the United Kingdom, or whether, as the United Kingdom claimed, the correct respondent was the United Nations or its General Assembly.
