Christopher Dodd, special adviser to the president of the United States, has pleaded with Suriname to back a UN intervention in Haiti. Dodd and President Chan Santokhi spoke about Haiti during their meeting. Senator Dodd was chosen by US President Joe Biden to oversee initiatives in the Americas.
On Tuesday, regional issues and the bilateral relationship between Suriname and the US were discussed. According to President Santokhi, Suriname is in favor of world peace, intercultural communication, and the institutions that make these things possible. The chief of state has suggested that the International Court of Justice intervene now that security and justice have broken down in Haiti.
Suriname will host the next OAS summit. Both Santokhi and Dodd agreed that regional cooperation could be further deepened.
