The International Court of Justice establishes Peru-Chile maritime border

The International Court of Justice, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations, on Monday 27th established a maritime boundary between South American neighbors Peru and Chile.
According to the verdict of The Hague-based court, the sea border extends to a distance of 80 nautical miles along the parallel from its starting point and then an equidistance line is drawn until it reaches the 200-nautical-mile limit.
"The Court concludes that the maritime boundary between the Parties starts at the intersection of the parallel of latitude passing through Boundary Marker No. 1 with the low-water line, and extends for 80 nautical miles along that parallel of latitude to Point A."
"From this point, the maritime boundary runs along the equidistance line to Point B, and then along the 200-nautical-mile limit measured from the Chilean baselines to Point C," said presiding judge Peter Tomka. Read more
