This Wednesday, the UN will officially receive the Ecuadorian Navigation Document, where the limits with Peru will be established. Ecuadorian President, Rafael Correa, expects Lima to corroborate this document.
In his weekly report, Correa said that once defined the limits, problems with Peru would be ended. He expected the country to ratify the document as soon as possible or else he would take other kinds of decisions which were not specified.
This week, the president met with Ministry officials and State general to follow up the issue of maritime boundaries proposed by Lima before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at La Haya against Santiago (Chile).
Correa confirms that the case involves the three countries that signed boundary treaties (Ecuador, Chile and Peru).In August 2010, Ecuador published a document which specifies its maritime boundary based on the tripartite treaty of 1952 and 1954, where Chile also claims a border with Peru.
Two months later, the Ecuadorian president told in a meeting with his counterparts in Peru, Alan Garcia, that Quito will intervene in the suit filed at the ICJ, if Lima objects the bilateral maritime boundaries.
