Colombia will continue to defend its sovereignty

The presence of six Colombian warships on the 82nd meridian three days after the International Court of Justice made its ruling in the dispute between Colombia and Nicaragua sparked a reaction from the Nicaraguan Army, who claimed “it too can push it to the limit” and warned Colombia that, if it finds Colombian ships in territory that now belongs to Nicaragua, they will have to leave.

Colombia’s Foreign Relations Minister, Maria Angela Holguín, said the Government is planning a new judicial strategy to sort out what could easily be the most difficult situation the country has ever faced in terms of sovereignty.

Holguín said Colombia will be asking Costa Rica, Panama, Jamaica and the United States for advice and assistance and the option of backing out of the Pact of Bogotá is still on the table.
