Press release
“On the visit to the DR of the special envoy of the prime minister of Haiti, Ariel Henry

Ambassador Daniel Supplice recently visited the country in his capacity as special envoy of the Prime Minister of Haiti, Ariel Henry. His trip was motivated by Henry’s desire to resume talks between the two governments and to offer the Dominican authorities his perspective on the situation there.

Supplice informed President Luis Abinader and Foreign Minister Roberto Alvarez that he would be, from now on, the direct voice to deal with on all matters of common interest and to advance the dialogue on the binational agenda.

The Dominican Foreign Minister informed Henry’s envoy of the desire that diplomatic relations be maintained on the basis of good neighborliness and mutual respect.

For the continuation of the intergovernmental talks, the Joint Bilateral Commission was confirmed as the ideal institutional space, and it is expected that the work of this commission, which operates under the ministries of Foreign Relations of both countries, will be resumed in the near future.

The Dominican authorities ratify that this contact with the Haitian envoy had as main topic of discussion the recognition of Mr. Daniel Supplice as the only interlocutor with Ariel Henry, the Prime Minister of Haiti, for the special topics of the bilateral agenda.”
