Britain Loses at UN (94-16)! International Court of Justice to Rule on Chagos

Britain loses UN vote 94-16, meaning the International Court of Justice will weigh in on whether UK or Mauritius has sovereignty over Chagos.

Only 3 European countries supported the UK post-Brexit. See: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/22/world/europe/uk-mauritius-chagos-islands.html
