Nicaragua challenges Colombia and Costa Rica

Thursday, August 16, 2012


Nicaragua accused Colombia and Costa Rica of wanting to appropriate Nicaraguan territory.

Land ownership disputes continued when Nicaraguan agent Carlos Arguello presented a claim Wednesday to the International Court of Justice that Colombia and Costa Rica wanted to "own" the Inter-Oceanic Nicaragua Canal by any means possible.

"The claims of Colombia and Costa Rica have the same origin and it is the desire of both to become owners by any means possible of a Nicaraguan canal, which was the origin of all of this [dispute]," Arguello said.
