AMSTERDAM: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Friday (June 1) said it has dropped a long-running territorial dispute between Malaysia and Singapore by mutual consent.  

The court said Malaysia this week notified it of its intent to drop its claim to Pedra Branca island, near the opening of the Straits of Singapore.
