Any dispute or controversy which cannot be resolved by mutual agreement within 60 (sixty) days or any claim arising out of or relating to the contract, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, shall be settled by arbitration in accordance with the prevailing UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules (United Nations Commission on International Trade Law).

9.2. The place of arbitration shall be Geneva and the language to be used shall be English. The number of arbitrators shall be 3 (three). Each party shall appoint 1 (one) arbitrator. The two arbitrators thus appointed shall choose the third arbitrator.
