On 1 March 1995, at the conclusion of the 1995 Cenepa War, Ecuador and Peru agreed to an exchange of prisoners of war (POWs) in furtherance of the Itamaraty and Montevideo agreements. This mutual return of POWs was followed by a second exchange on 30 June 1995, contributing to a larger peace process taking place at the conclusion of the conflict. Several international actors facilitated and supported the exchanges.
