“Operation Shield” seals Dominican-Haiti border
Santo Domingo.- Armed Forces minister Maximo Muñoz Delgado affirmed Friday that the border is protected and the armed forces are ready for any operation to ensure its security.
He asked Dominican society to rest assured because “the border is sealed” and noted that “Operation Shield” launched since his designation to the post is still in effect.
Muñoz spoke to reporters at the Defense Ministry after the presentation of diplomas to Dominican officials trained by Colombian pars to combat drug trafficking.
He said the trained officers will become multipliers by returning to their respective units to teach what they were taught.
“We´re in a process with the cooperation of all regional armed forces, this is our great achievement and a great achievement to be able to combine armies or armed forces of the United States and Colombia which come here to train our members; this is of great benefit for us, because we are only facilitators,” the official said.
Colombian and American instructors train the Armed Forces and the National Police to deal with new threats which in Muñoz´s view threaten the peace and security of the Dominican people.
