Peru and Chile: a very fishy spat
It’s all about patriotism. Well, and a bit of fishing.
On Monday, Peru and Chile started their oral arguments before the International Court of Justice in The Hague concerning a maritime dispute. Peru filed the case with the ICJ in January 2008, arguing that the maritime border was never established. Chile argues that a fishing agreement from the 1950s works like a treaty and that it already defined the zone.
