Peru Marks First Year Since Maritime Border Dispute Ruling

Lima, January 28 (RHC-Andina) -- Peru's President Ollanta Humala participated Tuesday in a ceremony commemorating the first year since the Hague-based International Court of Justice issued the ruling on the maritime dispute between Peruvians and Chileans.

To this end, the government had invited politicians, heads of State branches, regional and local authorities, and representatives from national organizations.

Among the guests were former presidents: Alejandro Toledo Manrique, as well as Congress Chairwoman Ana Maria Solorzano, the head of the Judiciary Victor Ticona Postigo, Prime Minister Ana Jara and Foreign Affairs minister Gonzalo Gutierrez.

Also attending the ceremony were congress members, representatives from political parties, former foreign ministers, diplomats, as well as civil, religious and military authorities.

In January 2014, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague awarded Peru over 50,000 square kilometers of maritime rights as result of a maritime dispute held between Peru and Chile.
