CHILE / BOLIVIA / PERU / The HAGUE : Leaders Ask Citizens For Calm...While Maritime Border Suit Is Heard.


     Oral arguments over the long disputed maritime border between Chile and Peru...begin tomorrow at The Hague.
     Peru claims Chile appropriated its territory...in the 'War of the Pacific.'
     Bolivia also wants to get involved...hoping to reclaim some access to the Pacific...long denied by Chile...and long resented by La Paz.
    Leaders of Peru and Chile are asking their citizens to remain calm...and avoid 'exacerbated nationalism.'
