Huanacuni confirmed that he would travel to The Hague next weekend together with Justice Minister Hector Arce and President of the Chamber of Deputies, Gabriela Montano to accompany representative Eduardo Rodriguez Vetze in the presentation of the replication at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
Communication Minister Gisela Lopez guranteed audio files and photographs about the presentation of Bolivia's replication at the ICJ on March 21.
According to Lopez, the initiative had the purpose of supporting the media in the coverage of the legal proceedings.
After the presentation, the Bolivian team will give a press conference outside the Peace Palace, headquarters of the United Nations ICJ, he added.
He said they would install huge screens in La Paz and the rest of the country, for the population to be able to follow the development of the national demand for access to the sea.
