New strain in ties between Costa Rica and Nicaragua

Monday, February 11, 2013

Diplomatic relations between Nicaragua and Costa Rica were strained again, after Managua requested the International Court of Justice in The Hague navigation rights on the Colorado river.

Meanwhile, the Costa Rican government announced that it will continue with the construction of a road parallel to the San Juan river.

On Monday, the government of Costa Rica accused Nicaragua of practicing an “expansionist policy” with the request made to The Hague for navigation rights on the Colorado River, as part of a territorial dispute.
