QCOSTARICA – Rapprochement with Nicaragua is very difficult, says researcher in International Law at the Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR) – University of Costa Rica, Carlos Murillo.

Murillo, speaking on the radio program Nuestra Voz, on Thursday, said if the dispute between the countries had been only territorial, dialogue between the two countries could be resumed following the Wednesday ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) .

However, “other intentions” move Nicaragua, one of which is the re-election of the current government next year, despite that country’s constitution does not allow it.

Current President Daniel Ortega has been in power since being elected to a second term in 2007 and re-elected in 2011. Ortega previously was leader of Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990, the “Sandinista revolution”.

Murillo added that the Nicaraguan government has adopted a triumphant position over the ICJ ruling, that favoured Costa Rica’s sovereignty over the disputed territories.

The researcher also noted economic interests moving Nicaragua, such as the building of the Canal, which work begun this year has been postponed for a year.

The Canal project is driven with the strong support of the Ortega government, whose “Personalist” approach will impede any dialogue with Costa Rica in the near future.
