Bolivian President Evo Morales said this weekend that Chile made a “secret offer” to grant the country access to the ocean in exchange for an alliance against Peru. Morales made the statements this Sunday, October 29 when documents concerning the assassination of John F. Kennedy were released by Unites States President Donald Trump. The documents allegedly contain evidence of the proposed alliance.
The alleged “offer” was made in December 1975 during Chile’s Augusto Pinochet dictatorship, and includes an offer of a 6.2-mile passage to the ocean.
Last time I checked, Pres. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, so it’s unclear why 1975 events would be included in the files, but hey, we’re talking about Evo here.

As far as the Chile-Bolivia border dispute goes,
The International Court of Justice of The Hague is waiting on the oral arguments of both countries that will take place during the first semester of 2018. A ruling is expected during the second half of the year.
I doubt that the ICJ will give any weight to the JFK flies.
But one never knows.
