Transnational Issues in Chile
 
 
 

Disputes – International

Chile and Peru rebuffs Bolivia's reactivated claim to restore the Atacama corridor, ceded to Chile in 1884, offering instead unrestricted but not sovereign maritime access through Chile to Bolivian gas and other commodities. Chile rejects Peru's unilateral legislation to change its latitudinal maritime boundary with Chile to an equidistance line with a southwestern axis favouring Peru; in October 2007, Peru took its maritime complaint with Chile to the ICJ. Chile's territorial claim in Antarctica (Chilean Antarctic Territory) partially overlaps Argentine and British claims. The joint boundary commission, established by Chile and Argentina in 2001, has yet to map and demarcate the delimited boundary in the inhospitable Andean Southern Ice Field (Campo de Hielo Sur).

Illicit Drugs

Chile is an important trans-shipment country for cocaine destined for Europe and the region. Economic prosperity and increasing trade have made Chile more attractive to traffickers seeking to launder drug profits, especially through the Iquique Free Trade Zone, but a new anti-money-laundering law improves controls. Lately, Chile's domestic cocaine consumption is rising.
