Pending Issues in Latin America

Evo Morales says that with the end of the Colombian conflict, there are only three pending international issues in Latin America:

1. Returning Guantánamo to Cuba
2. Returning the Islas Malvinas to Argentina
3. Returning sea access to Bolivia

All of these date well over a century ago. Two are related to imperial powers while the third is entirely Latin America, specifically Chilean, which makes it an awkward fit. But Bolivia needs a "return" theme to fit itself into the equation.

I don't think many other countries would make the same list. My hunch is that other lists would include border problems such as migration and drug trafficking.
