Nicaragua suspends oil exploration in Colombian waters around San Andrés
Nicaraguan oil exploration near the Colombian archipelago of San Andrés was suspended due to a civil action brought by an environmental agency.
The exploration in the seas to the west of the island of San Andrés -- a maritime area at the heart of a border dispute -- was suspended after Coralina, the sustainable development agency of the archipelago brought a civil suit, RCN reported. Coralina was alerted to Nicaragua's intention by Armando Zamorra, the director of Colombia's National Hydrocarbons Agency.
