Chancellor Ampuero affirms that Chile respects the treaties in force and calls for "the unity of all Chileans" in the face of The Hague ruling
On October 1, the International Court of Justice in The Hague will read out in public hearing the ruling in the trial between Bolivia and Chile, in which Bolivia demands sovereign access to the Pacific Ocean. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Roberto Ampuero, stated that "Chile respects international law and also demands respect for treaties in force," while calling for "the unity of all Chileans around the defense of our country's interests".
"The Government of Chile underscores its unrestricted attachment to international law and the intangibility of treaties in force," said Foreign Minister Ampuero, who added that Chile is "calmly" awaiting this ruling.
The Minister also indicated that, together with the President of the Republic, Sebastián Piñera, they will be in these days in coordination and conversation with high figures of our institutionality.
