ICJ Delivers Final Judgment in Peru vs. Chile Case
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) delivered its final judgment in determining a maritime boundary between Peru and Chile on 27 January, 2014. The court awarded more than half of a disputed 38,000-square-kilometer patch of ocean to Peru, but Chile retained the bulk of the valuable coastal fishing grounds within that area. Both countries have pledged to abide by the ruling.
Registrar of the ICJ, Philippe Couvreur, speaks during the delivery of the Court’s Judgment in the case concerning the Maritime Dispute between Peru and Chile.
