Nicaragua and Costa Rica in Border Dispute before ICJ

Nicaragua will submit to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) its stance on maritime boundaries in the Pacific Ocean and in the Caribbean Sea, according to official sources today.

The Nicaragua´s ICJ Representative, Carlos Arguello, explained that the border dispute will be analyzed in the first round of speeches of the tribunal in The Hague, Holland. In this regard, he stated that from the changes caused over the course of the San Juan River, Costa Rica said that the border must begin at its mouth.

‘As the river has now changed and has moved northward, part of the Nicaraguan territory, then Costa Rica intends that the delimitation begins from the point where the mouth of the river currently is,’ he said.

With an extension of 200 kilometers, 140 of them as common border, San Juan River keeps a great historical importance for both nations.

Disagreements over the watercourse sovereignty led Costa Rica to begin litigation in 2005 before the IJC.
