The Organization of American States (OAS) on Thursday sent a special mission to the Dominican Republic and Haiti in order to gather information on the situation of Haitian migrants in the field and, following its analysis, to prepare a report for the secretary general of the hemispheric institution, Luis Almagro.

The mission, headed by the OAS secretary for political affairs, Francisco Guerrero of Mexico, will initiate its work in Santo Domingo today and will end its activities in Haiti on July 14th.

Deployed at the invitation of the Dominican and Haitian governments, the special mission of a technical and impartial nature is guided, according to Guerrero, “by the will to build bridges between the two countries in order to find a lasting solution to the dispute.”

During its visit to both countries, the mission will meet with government officials, specialized agencies in charge of migrants’ registration, as well as migrants themselves and other actors involved in the process.
