Honduras. According to COUNTRYAAH, a border treaty with Colombia, signed already in 1986 but not ratified by the two countries until December 1999, has led to conflict between Honduras and Nicaragua. The reason is that the ratification implies an implicit reinforcement of Colombia's claim to supremacy over the San Andrés islands, to which Nicaragua also has territorial claims. Nicaragua immediately increased import duties on Honduran goods and deployed troops at the border, and at the end of February, gunfire exchanged between patrol boats from both countries in the Gulf of Fonseca, another disputed border area.
