1. By means of a letter “Notice to Discontinue” dated 13 June 2014 Claimant informed the Arbitral Tribunal that it was withdrawing its claim and requested an order for termination of the proceedings in the following terms:
[F]ollowing discussions between the Parties and as a gesture of good will in their relations, Claimant hereby withdraws its claim on a “without prejudice” basis, without waiving any rights in relation to the facts and circumstances giving rise to the present dispute, without waiving its right to refile and with the understanding that Respondent waives any defense of res judicata against any claims that Claimant may raise in the future. Claimant considers that, as a result of the mutual understandings reached as reflected in this Notice, the continuation of the arbitral proceedings has become unnecessary and requests that the Tribunal issue an order for the termination of the proceedings under UNCITRAL Arbitration Rule 34(2) in accordance herewith.
Claimant emphasizes the Parties mutually intend that no negative inference or prejudice against either Party should be drawn or asserted with respect to the discontinuance of these proceedings. Furthermore, neither Party has made any admission of fault or liability, and no payment of compensation by one party to another or other settlement of the dispute has been agreed to between the Parties.
