Peru’s government prints ‘Chile border dispute pamphlets’ for schools and institutes

(LIP-ir) — Peru’s government has announced it will print and hand out approximately nine million pamphlets in the country’s schools and institutes with information on the lawsuit it filed at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to settle a border dispute with Chile.

"There is a need to inform the population about the lawsuit Peru filed in The Hague concerning the border dispute with Chile, and I am in a position to report that the government is preparing explanatory texts. About nine million copies will be edited to be distributed in schools and institutes," said Luis Gonzales Posada, the president of congress.

He explained this was a simple way of informing the country on the maritime border dispute with Chile and at the same time it fostered a peaceful attitude among the country’s citizens.

Gonzales Posada commended government officials on the hard work being done in the case that is to define Peru’s southern border.

Peru officially took its maritime border dispute with Chile to the International Court of Justice in The Hague on January 16. The Andean country’s former Defense Minster, Allan Wagner, Peru’s official representative during the case, filed the suit.
