On his first working day in Paris, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Heraldo Muñoz, arrived at the Chilean embassy in France to hold a preparatory meeting with the Chilean legal team representing our country in the case "Obligation to Negotiate Access to the Pacific Ocean" in The Hague.

This activity took place in the run-up to tomorrow's meeting of the Chilean team, led by the Chancellor, with international lawyers representing the country before the International Court of Justice.

At today's meeting, the Chancellor, together with Chilean lawyers, reviewed the interventions and planning for tomorrow's day, which will be carried out with the team of international lawyers.
