ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the territorial disputes between Argentina and Chile. Argentina and Chile had rows over their boundaries. The Chilean government wanted to enforce a 1998 border agreement between the countries and demanded that the section from Mount Fitzroy to Murallon Hill in the Southern Andes Ice Fields must be shown as blank on any maps. The territorial disputes between Chile and Argentina dated back to the countries' inception as independent states. They fought for control over Tierra del Fuego and parts of a common Andean boundary. The countries also had a dispute over the islands in the Beagle Channel, with Chile given the ownership under the Treaty of Peace and Friendship. Argentina won the ownership of Andean territory in the Laguna del Rosario dispute.
