Dominican Republic yesterday called for a sustained peace in Haiti, based on a human development that assures equal opportunities for all its citizens, political stability and the creation of decent jobs.
Foreign Relations minister Carlos Morales, who represented the country in the UN Security Council meeting to debate Haiti’s situation, said equal opportunities for Haiti “means a government which assures access to essential public services, such as water, education, energy, health and security.”
He said equality also means the possibility that all Haitians abroad can return and enjoy the same rights and obligations, as well as contributing their knowledge and resources for their nation’s development.
Morales said with sustainable peace in that nation, “would exist a prosperous, developing Haiti, with equal opportunities, legal security, harmony with the environment and decent jobs for the Haitians in Haiti.”
He added that the Dominican-Haitian Mixed Binational Commission is anxious to resume its work with a vast agenda of topics of joint interest, especially after both nations showed their solidarity in the aftermath of last year’s earthquake.
In the meeting headed by Colombia president Juan Manuel Santos participated United States ex president Bill Clinton; OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza; Inter-American Development Bank president (IDB) Luis Alberto Moreno and the Foreign Relations minister from Argentina, Peru, Chile, Brazil and Cuba, among others of the region.
