THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The president of Bolivia has delivered written legal arguments to the United Nations' highest court in his land-locked nation's bid to gain access to part of Chile's Pacific coast.
Bolivian President Evo Morales personally handed over documents at the International Court of Justice on Tuesday that supports his country's claim against Chile in an ongoing case that it hopes will win it back the sea access it lost over a century ago. Landlocked Bolivia - which still maintains a navy - took its case to the Hague last year. It is seeking to force its neighbor to give back a Pacific Ocean passage that it lost in an 1880s war won by Chile. "We trust that Bolivia will soon have sovereignty again in the Pacific, the arguments are on our side," said Morales after handing over the documents.
