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.
