“The hearings will continue on Wednesday (?), in which we, as Bolivian team, will have the opportunity to make our last participation before the Court supporting our response to Chile’s claim and justifying the counterclaim,” said the diplomat.

The also ambassador of the Plurinational State to the Netherlands said that Chile will give its response to the arguments of the counterclaimant on April 14, closing date of the oral hearing, after which the jury will have several months before issuing a verdict.

This Monday, in the second round of Chile’s arguments, lawyers Samuel Wordsworth, Klein Kranenberg, Laurence Boisson, and, finally, its agent Ximena Fuentes took the floor.

According to reports, the Chilean defense expressed that the trans-Andean nation will not create any obstacle for Bolivia to use the waters of the Silala in the future under the principle of “equitable and reasonable use”.

However, counsel Boisson stressed that the disagreements between the parties include, precisely, “the interpretation and application of the principle of equitable and reasonable use, and the obligations related to that principle regarding the exchange of information and prior notification”.
