Haiti - Security : The DR is strengthening the border like never before...
President Luis Abinader declared this week that the various Dominican military authorities were preparing to strengthen the border in terms of security, in anticipation of the arrival of troops from the Multinational Security Support Mission in Haiti

"We were preparing to strengthen the border like never before, in all aspects, both in terms of personnel and in terms of equipment and infrastructure."

As part of this reinforcement Abinader mentioned better equipment for the Armed Forces, evoking the integration of URO armored vehicles model VAMTAC (High Mobility Tactical Vehicle) ST5, which have armor against heavy weapons and explosives, as well as than a range of more than 600 kilometers and speeds of up to 135 kilometers per hour, fully charged in rugged geographic areas, predominant at the border “We also use drones in places where there is no no fence; our armed forces are today better equipped than ever."

Regarding the improvement of border infrastructure, he cited the expansion of the Beller Fortress, in Dajabón, as well as the creation of a common area at each kilometer of the perimeter fence, equipped with detachments.

Regarding the participation of the Dominican Republic in the pacification operations of Haiti, Abinader affirmed that the Dominican Republic will not serve as a base for foreign interventionists. He clarified that his country will only be linked in terms of logistics and information due to its territorial proximity, in order to know when the forces led by Kenya will act "We are also in coordination with the forces that will pacify Haiti, when there will be special actions [...] we must be ready to know when they are going to do it."
