Swaraj congratulates Bhandari on re-election to ICJ

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday congratulated India's Dalveer Bhandari on his re-election to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and complimented her ministry's officials for their efforts in ensuring his success.

She made a special mention of India's Permanent Representative in the UN, Syed Akbaruddin, while hailing her ministry's team.

"Congratulations to Justice Dalveer Bhandari on his re-election as a Judge of the ICJ. Huge efforts by Team - MEA. Syed Akbaruddin @AkbaruddinIndia our Permanent Representative in UN deserves a special mention," she tweeted.

Bhandari was re-elected on Tuesday to the ICJ as the General Assembly overwhelmingly threw its weight behind him, forcing Britain to withdraw its candidate from a hard-fought race to the world court.

Following his election, Swaraj had tweeted, "Vande Matram - India wins election to the International Court of Justice. JaiHind".
