Ecuadorian Foreign Minister, Ricardo Patiño said the development of the navigational chart will aim to avoid political disputes with neighboring countries.
Last Wednesday, Ecuador presented the document to the United Nations (UN). A positive answer from the organization and an approval of Peru is expected. This document established the reference points of the boundary between Ecuador and Peru based on “existing treaties” signed in 1952 and 1954 between the two countries.
Patiño reported that Peru has not yet ruled on the issue as there are still elements to analyze. He clarifies that the purpose of delivering the chart to the UN is to record at an international level the position of Ecuador on the maritime boundary.
