ICJ Begins Deliberations in Territorial and Maritime Dispute Between Nicaragua and Colombia

The International Court of Justice has concluded its public hearings in the "Territorial and Maritime Dispute" between Nicaragua and Colombia. Nicaragua is seeking a declaration that it has sovereignty over all of the maritime features off her Caribbean coast that are not proven to be part of the San Andres Achipelago, and that it would also have sovereignty over any features on the bank of the Quitasueno that qualify as islands under international law.  It also argued that the appropriate delimitation of the coasts of Nicaragua and Colombia is a continental shelf boundary established by dividing by equal parts, as well as other claims.  Click here to read more about its claims, and those of Colombia.
