“While it is a decision of each country how to invest their money, as part of the region and neighbouring country there is no doubt that it is something that gets our attention and concern, not only for us, but also the other countries in the region,” said González.

González added that the concern is real given the “risks” facing Costa Rica, after the invasion of the country’s northeast corner, the Isla Calero – Portillos, in 2010.

“We ask that the international community and our friends follow up and be informed about what is happening,” said the Chancellor.

The statements were made after González appeared before the legislative committe on International Affairs, on Thursday morning, where he gave his report on the current state of relations with the government of Daniel Ortega.

González spoke about the three cases that are currently before the International Court of Justice in The Hague: Nicaragua’s alleged invasion of Isla Calero, Costa Rica’s construction of the border trail along the border and the maritime boundary dispute.

The Chancellor also touched briefly on the subject of Nicaragua’s interest in Guanacaste, an airport being built in San Juan del Sur (Nicaragua), near Costa Rica border and the possibilities that the construction of a canal by Nicaragua could affect the Colorado river and the 15 dredges that are supposedly intended to clean the San Juan river bed.
