LIMA, May 24 (BERNAMA-NNN-ANDINA) -- Peruvian Foreign Minister Rafael Roncagliolo will travel to Paris this week to meet with the Peruvian delegation at the International Court of Justice in The Hague and international lawyers who advise Peru on the maritime dispute with Chile.
For this purpose, Roncagliolo will visit France from Thursday to May 27.
The meeting takes place just over six months ahead of public hearings in the case concerning the maritime dispute between Peru and Chile.
In Jan 2008, Peru filed a formal complaint with the ICJ to determine the maritime border with Chile, given that the border was not established by any international treaty.
In Chile's view, the maritime boundaries had been previously established by fishing agreements in 1952 and 1954.
Earlier this week, Roncagliolo said Peru is confident that the Court will rule in favour of Peru in this long-running dispute. According to specialists, a final ruling is expected by middle of next year.
After his meetings in Paris, Roncagliolo will pay official visits to Sweden and Russia to discuss issues on the bilateral agenda, deepen Peru's presence among Nordic countries, and strengthen political and economic ties with Russia.
This trip will take place from May 28 to 30.
