Costa Rica and Nicaragua Border Dispute

There is currently a heated dispute between Costa Rica and Nicaragua regarding the border between the two countries. This article explains the history of the dispute and how the US has become a player in the fight. Another article tells about Costa Rica bringing its case to the international court.

This situation is interesting to me because the alliance of Nicaragua and the United States elevates the importance of the condition. The upcoming Presidential elections for Nicaragua also raise the stakes for Daniel Ortega.
