Prelate: Peru, Chile are example in resolving international disputes

Catholic World News - January 28, 2014

Chile and Peru are an example to the world in how to resolve international disputes, the president of the Peruvian Episcopal Conference said after the International Court of Justice rendered a decision in a maritime border dispute.

The two nations turned to the court to resolve the disagreement.

“It is the first time that we look for solutions without weapons, without protest, but through dialogue, reflection and responsibility,” said Archbishop Salvador Piñeiro, according to a Fides news agency report. “If it had been easy, we would not have gone to court.”

“The people of Peru and Chile are interested in further strengthening bilateral relations, because they both love freedom, they believe in democracy and justice,” he added.
