OAS Secretary Insulza says border conflict between Nicaragua and Costa Rica should be solved by The Hague (ICJ) or the UN.

Court of Justice in The Hague

The OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza acknowledged today that the border conflict in the Rio San Juan between Nicaragua and Costa Rica is only up to trial in the International Court of Justice in The Hague (ICJ).

Insulza told nicaraguan reporters in Washington, noted that the dredging of Rio San Juan is not competent to the OAS, but in The Hague, as far as Costa Ricans now had only two resources to go in order to solve the conflict with Nicaragua: go to the Security Council of the UN or to the Court in The Hague, which will begin hearing from January 11, 2011.

In this regard said that the costs of taking the case to The Hague are very high and that this process takes years of waiting for resolution.

Costa Rica has set forth in the OAS that his country was invaded by Nicaraguan troops but nicaraguans says that international treaties demonstrates that this territory is from Nicaragua.

Under international law, the judgments of the International Court of Justice in The Hague are final and unavoidable compliance.
