Today, the OAS Commission embarks on a border expedition to conduct reconnaissance.

Santo Domingo.- A mission from the Organization of American States (OAS) is visiting the Dominican Republic to gather information about the canal being built by Haiti on the Dajabón-Masacre River. The mission includes Dr. Jean Michel Arrighi, Secretary of Legal Affairs of the OAS, and Andrés Sánchez of the Secretariat of Integral Development.

This visit follows a request from the Dominican President, Luis Abinader, for OAS mediation to address the crisis caused by the construction of the canal, which the Dominican government considers a violation of the treaties. The objective of the mission is to collect technical information and understand the situation. On Tuesday, the delegation will visit the border area near Dajabón, where Haiti is building the canal over the Masacre River.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Dominican Republic, technicians from the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources (Indhri), and the National Institute of Drinking Water and Sewerage (Inapa) have provided information on flood risks and water intakes on the Dominican side. These do not affect Haiti but are used by Haitian farmers.

This mission plays a crucial role in addressing the issue impartially and objectively while seeking to strengthen peace and cooperation in the region. The information collected will be reported to the Secretary General of the OAS and the member states to contribute to a solution that considers the concerns of both nations and reinforces the legal and institutional framework that governs bilateral relations.
