Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed in 1984

The 1984 Treaty of Peace and Friendship between Argentina and Chile represents the complete and definitive solution to the issues of border determination between both countries from the Beagle Channel to Cape Horn. This agreement arose as a resolution to the Beagle Conflict, which brought both countries to the brink of war in December 1978. Given the seriousness of the situation, both governments asked the Holy See to act as mediator in the dispute that arose in the southern zone, finally achieving a peaceful and negotiated solution to the conflict.

The treaty includes maritime delimitation and procedures for the resolution of disputes, as well as stipulating navigation rights and specifying the boundaries in the Strait of Magellan. It establishes that the sea to the west is Chilean and to the east is Argentine. Both countries mutually recognize the already established Straight Base Lines, which precisely delimit what each nation considers the shore of the islands and determine the jurisdictional waters. This agreement has been fundamental for stability and cooperation in the region, strengthening diplomatic ties and peaceful coexistence between both nations.
