Bolivia's lost sea coast

Bolivia lost its outlet to the Pacific Ocean in a war fought with Chile from 1879 to 1883. Since then it has pushed for the return of this territory, thus far without success, making it one of only two landlocked countries in South America. Remarkably the issue has come into the open again, as seen in this report in MercoPress: "Chile: No way will we give Bolivia sovereign access to sea."
