On this occasion, the two Ministers and the Norwegian State Secretary for Foreign Affairs signed the Declaration of Intent of Ouanaminthe, in which they reaffirmed the need to combine their efforts to contribute to the protection of the environment and the conservation of natural resources on the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
