"Shared borders imply that political and social processes significantly impact each other," Alvarez said.
The Dominican Republic’s Foreign Affairs Minister Roberto Alvarez Monday requested the United Nations (UN) Security Council to maintain its Integrated Office in Haiti given the political, social, and economic crisis this country is facing.
Since 2018, Haiti experiences persistent crisis which forced to postpone the legislative elections scheduled for autumn 2019.
As these elections were not held, the Parliament was closed down last January and President Jovenel Moise has been governing by decree, which has increased the social discontent.
Alvares called on the international community to extend the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) mandate, which should facilitate a comprehensive political pact in this country to ensure holding legislative elections as soon as possible.
BINUH began to operate in October 2019 with the objectives of advising the government to achieve political stability and good governance.
