Chile & DR support Haiti

From dominicantoday.com:

SANTO DOMINGO.- The presidents of Chile and of the Dominican Republic affirmed that they were committed to work together for the purpose of helping Haiti to solve its problems and definitively embark itself on the path to democracy. Michelle Bachelet was received by Leonel Fernandez in the National Palace at 7:00 PM on Saturday night

In addition, Bachelet justified the presence of her country’s troops in Haiti, stating that they are in a humanitarian effort.

The chief executives met for about one hour, and discussed bilateral issues aimed at benefiting both nations.

In a press conference, Chile’s president said that she favors that her nation’s forces remain in Haiti until helping that neighboring country to form its own army and announced that in a short term Bolivia and Paraguay will join those efforts.

The Chilean chief executive said that her presence in the Dominican Republic ‚Äďa visit lasting just 7 hours and left to return on midnight Sunday- aims to bolster the bonds between both nations.
