Haiti will provide passports to citizens that live in the Dominican Republic
SD. The new Chancellor of Haiti, Lener Ranauld, reported yesterday to his Dominican counterpart, Andres Navarro, that the government of President Michel Martelli is working on the solution of the production problems of passports for the Haitians that live in the Dominican Republic.
The diplomat offered this information during a bilateral meeting which he held with his Dominican counterpart at the VIII Meeting of Chancellors of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which is being held in Quito, Ecuador.
Both men reviewed the work that the two countries are carrying out in order to guarantee the continuity of the process that was started with the previous Haitian Chancellor, Duly Brutus.
“At the present time we are working on the process of structuring a National Identification Document – a sort of identification cédula – with the purpose of issuing the document as soon as possible to those Haitians that apply to the Plan of Normalization in the Dominican Republic,” he underlined.
According to a note sent by the Dominican Chancellery, both diplomats agreed to continue the consolidation of the bi-national talks in search of answers to the issues of common interest.
Navarro said that this was a bilateral meeting in which they reviewed the different issues tied to the relations that exist between both countries, since Ranauld, who took office a few weeks ago, after the decision by Minister Brutus to resign the position of Chancellor in order to run for the Presidency of Haiti.
He stressed that until now they have advanced on different documents of bi-national agreements regarding security, education, the management of common watersheds, among other aspects of development. For this reason both governments should maintain the disposition of open and constructive talks.
Likewise, Navarro expressed his satisfaction and that of the government of President Medina with the appointment of the new Haitian Chancellor, “an official who has been involved in the process of coming together between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, so that we are in a propitious moment to renew the bilateral meetings.”
