PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – President Michel Martelly will welcome the Dominican President, Danilo Medina, to Port-au-Prince in the coming days according to information resulting from a meeting held in Barahona, Dominican Republic on Tuesday.
Very little information has been given to the Haitian press regarding the meet-up that was requested by Martelly.
Dominican newspaper, Listin Diario, reports that among agreements made Tuesday, a binational commission was established to move towards the lifting of the land-entry ban on 23 Dominican products.
This commission is expected to meet in two weeks, October 27, 2015, in Port-au-Prince, two days after a presidential election is expected to take place.
The agreement of a total of six points also includes the return of the Dominican Ambassador to Haiti, back to Haiti, and the appointment of a new Haitian Ambassador to the Dominican Republic – although without a Senate to confirm, is legitimately impossible. They also agreed to reactivate the Joint Binational Commission.
Many regard the friendly relations as undermining the movements against the Dominican Republic’s 168-13 tribunal ruling which stripped citizenship from Dominican of foreign descent dating back to 1928.
