Chapter Summary

The Río de la Plata River was originally named by the Spanish seamen "River of Solís" or "Mar Dulce". The fluvial nature of the River, which in this case is not a redundant statement, has decisive legal effects. The Treaty of the Río de la Plata subsequently included, explicitly, what had been established both by the Joint Declaration on the Outer Limit and by the Treaty of Limits of the Uruguay River with regard to the inner limit. Once the Río de la Plata's inner space, fluvial nature and bilateral character were established, there remained to undertake the negotiation to settle "the Plata issue". In conflicting situations arising from a history of incidents the negotiation involved reaching a common will to resolve the dispute. The signature of the agreement aimed to show its importance as well as mirror the support of both governments.
