Open waters

FULL TEXT With vast oceans to patrol, rich exclusive economic zones (EEZs) to enforce, and a booming energy-rich offshore industry to protect, Latin America is a region with a plethora of naval missions challenged by tight spending budgets. Maritime law enforcement remains the key challenge and most of the region's navies have set up coastguard-type services within their own military structures to deal with non-state threats. Protecting commercial sea lanes, maritime interests, and offshore resources, as well as supporting international peacekeeping efforts all require Latin American countries to possess and develop naval power projection capabilities. The need to enforce sovereignty along maritime borders, while sporadic, remains a latent issue. Unresolved maritime territorial disputes - which have heated up in recent years - involve Colombia and Nicaragua in the waters around the San Andres Archipelago, as well as El Salvador and Honduras over the Gulf of Fonseca. Other disputes, such as those between Chile and Peru, have been resolved diplomatically, while Argentine claims to the Falklands and other UK possessions in the South Atlantic persist.
