In response to the unstable political situation in Haiti, the Dominican Republic is moving troops and military equipment up to the border.
During the first week of February 2016, 2,256 soldiers and several helicopters were moved to the border.
Specialized Corps of Border Security (CESFRONT) director General Carlos Manuel Aguirre Reyes met with United Nations Mission for the Stabilization of Haiti (Minustah) commander Ajax Porto Pinheiro on Monday, 15 February 2016, to ensure coordination between the two forces, in case the instability in Haiti could have repercussions for the Dominican Republic.
Cesfront has also doubled the number of observation points, stepped up its patrols and increased intelligence along the border area.
