SANTIAGO.- Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mariano Fernández, confirmed this morning that the Chilean government has decided to ask for explanations from the ambassadors of Brazil and Argentina after the diplomats from both nations issued statements in Lima in favor of Peru's maritime claim at The Hague.

Fernández stated that "the affirmations made by the ambassadors in a regional capital surprised me, since ambassadors generally act upon instructions", reported Radio Cooperativa.

The minister also said that as the head of Chilean diplomacy he has information regarding the stance of the governmental administrations lead by Lula Da Silva and Cristina Fernández concerning the dispute between Chile and Peru at The Hague International Court.

Furthermore, he also reiterated the statements made yesterday by the Minister of Government Affairs, José Antonio Viera-Gallo, who contended that in response to the affirmations made by the ambassadors, Chile will go ahead with "all appropriate diplomatic procedures" to clarify the matter.
