Dominican Republic and Haiti to fight drug trafficking

Jimani, DR.- Haitian and Dominican security forces are teaming up to neutralize drug trafficking, after their shared island of Hispaniola is used as a major transit route for narcotics shipments en route to the United States.

The Dominican Republic and Haiti agreed to pool their resources, intelligence and armed forces to intercept drug shipments and combat human trafficking. Combined efforts and a united front are essential, as Hispaniola is a focal point of the drug cartels’ route for cocaine and other drugs to the US.

Both nations were somewhat distant neighbours over the years, but this changed after Haiti’s earthquake. Their police forces are also now sharing training programs.
