Bolivian President Thanks Reception by Chilean Broad Front

La Paz, Mar 12 (Prensa Latina) President Evo Morales thanked today the reception given by the Broad Front of Chile, in his brief visit to that country for the inauguration of his peer Sebastián Piñera.
The president also posted on his Twitter account the Front's support to the maritime cause, less than 10 days for the oral phase in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) of The Hague, in the Netherlands.

He also assured that these voices are joined to those of many other Chilean brothers who also demand sea outlet for Bolivia, a sovereign right the country will demand in the ICJ from March 19 to 28 during the hearing.

In another message, Morales thanked Broad Front legislators Gael Yeomans (Libertarian Left), Claudia Mix (Poder party) and Camila Rojas (Autonomous Left) for his affectionate reception after arriving in Chile, for the inauguration yesterday of Piñera's second term.

He also assured that the peoples of Bolivia and Chile are brothers and both want to build a fairer society.

After the Chilean military invasion in 1879, the Bolivian nation lost a 400-kilometer coastline and another 120,000 square kilometers of sovereign territory rich in natural resources.
