Our ambassador to the Dominican Republic (also accredited to Haiti) has periodic discussions with the Governments of the Dominican Republic and Haiti on security issues, including on the international border between the two countries. In September, he discussed with the Dominican Minister for the Armed Forces security on the border.

The UK is also a major financial contributor to MINUSTAH, the UN stabilisation mission in Haiti, which plays an important role in ensuring security on the Haitian side of the border.
