Bolivian government highlights defense of Silala case in The Hague

The secretary general of the Strategic Directorate for Maritime Claims, Silala and International Water Resources (Diremar), Emerson Calder贸n, commented that the doors of dialogue will always be open.

Chilean President Gabriel Boric said Tuesday that he expects a “new step” in bilateral relations with Bolivia.

Calder贸n stressed, however, that these talks must take into account the rights and interests of both parties and not just one.

Bolivia and Chile went to The Hague about the dispute over the status and use of the waters of the Silala, in the department of Potos铆.

The ICJ, in its final verdict, must clearly establish the amount of reduction in the flow of the liquid element towards Chile due to the dismantling of the artificial canals and the preservation of the bofedales.

Interviewed by a local radio station, Calder贸n maintained that transboundary water resources encourage and stimulate cooperation between the two nations.
