Honourable Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, Prime Minister of the Republic of Mauritius, addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations, on 22 May 2019, on Agenda item 88 – Request for an Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the legal consequences of the separation of the Chagos Archipelago in 1965.
 
The Draft Resolution was tabled at the UN General Assembly by the Permanent Representative of Senegal on behalf of the States Members of the United Nations that are members of the Group of African States.  It calls for the termination of the unlawful colonial administration as rapidly as possible, and for Member States, UN agencies and international organisations to cooperate with the General Assembly in bringing about the full decolonisation of Mauritius as well as refraining from acts that would impede the performance of that obligation.
