Dominican Republic President Danillo Medina held talks on Friday with Trinidad native Sandra Honore, the special representative of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Haiti and the head of the MINUSTAH peacekeeping mission.
The talks in Santo Domingo took place in an “atmosphere of collegiality,” according to a statement from Medina’s office. The two sides reportedly discussed topics including the “description of the multiple functions performed by MINUSTAH.”
It was not clear whether the two discussed the ongoing citizenship controversy between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Honore took office in July, succeeding former MINUSTAH Chief Mariano Fernandez, a native of Chile.
