Greytown Airport "Invades" CR Airspace?
Inside Costa Rica offers up yet another story about the ongoing Costa Rica/Nicaragua dispute concerning events along the Rio San Juan. This time it is the assertion that the new airport invades Costa Rican airspace.
The Greytown airport in Nicaragua, located in the Caribbean coast, is the latest skirmish between the neighbouring countries. Costa Rica's drug czar, Mauricio Boraschi, saying that the construction of the Greytown airport violates Costa Rican airspace.
I will assume that a bad translation is the reason it says construction (La Nacion probably has a worthile article in Spanish) but it is but one more case of Costa Rica throwing stones at Nicaragua. The article also goes on to say that they learned that Nicaragua will also build a border road. While their could be environmental issues if the road is not done right, we still need to remember that the river, all of it, is in Nicaragua, not Costa Rica.
The comments to the article are better than the article suggesting this is just noise to cover up real problems in Chinchilla's presidency. It's pretty clear that working together in this region could be a bit win for both countries.
