QCOSTARICA – President Luis Guillermo Solis said Friday will be moving up his trip to Cuba one day to be back in Costa Rica on Wednesday, December 16, for the reading of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) reading of the final decision on the Isla Calero dispute.

Solis will travel to La Habana on December 13 and be back in Costa Rica the night of the 15th, travelling on a Fuerza Publica plane. Normally the President flies commercial.

President Solis said the government of Raul Castro was consenting to the change in travel dates, given the importance of the Court decision.

With respect of the ICJ decision, the President said Costa Rica will be respectful and abide by whatever the outcome, but believes it be in Costa Rica’s favour.

“The attitude we have is absolutely positive, no doubt, that is, we believe that Costa Rica has done the work it had to do, that the arguments have been strong and clear,” said Solis Friday morning in an impromptu press conference at Casa Presidencial.

During the meeting with the press, with respect to the Cuban migrant crisis, Solis said a solution is still “possible” and that he would touch on the subject with his Cuban counterpart during his visit to the island.
