Chilean Invasion is a Historic Insult to Bolivia – VP

Bolivian Vice President Álvaro García Linera described Wednesday the Chilean invasion to Bolivia in 1879 as a historical insult.

The statement came as a response to a Twit of the Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz, who described as aggressive a message from President Evo Morales on the military action that deprived Bolivia of its sovereign access to the Pacific Ocean.

‘We are not the invaders, we have never touched a millimeter of Chilean territory,’ he said during a meeting with the press at the Government Palace.

According to García Linera, Chile’s invasion to Bolivia stands as one of the greatest abuses in the continent’s history as it is an aggression against a sister nation to take away its belongings.

This action, he recalled, snatched Bolivia its maritime quality, resources and history.

Aggression is invading neighboring countries, stealing water and not meeting commitments, added Garcia Linera.
