Colombia this week recalled it’s ambassador to Nicaragua, Luz Stella Jara, amid flaring tensions over the ongoing maritime border dispute with Nicaragua. 

“We have decided to recall our ambassador, Luz Stella Jara, who should be arriving tomorrow, so she can report on why it is impossible to have a dialogue with Nicaragua,” Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin said during a press conference on Wednesday, according to media reports.

The recall comes at the one year anniversary of the International Court of Justice’s 2012 ruling that redrew the maritime border between the two countries, giving Nicaragua some 90,000 square kilometers of Caribbean Sea once claimed by Colombia. 

The South American nation refuses to accept the Court’s ruling and is accusing Nicaragua of expansionism. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos announced last month that his government is also preparing a letter of protest after two Russian bombers entered Colombian airspace without authorization during a flight between Managua and Caracas. 

Nicaragua, meanwhile, has filed a new case against Colombia accusing the country of violating international law.
