The Dominican and US authorities agreed that new communication technologies should be used to improve information exchange so that cross-border crime and cooperation in natural disasters in the region can be more effectively combated.
This was expressed by Secretary of Defense Carlos Luciano Díaz Morfa and the head of the United States’ Southern Command, Craig Faller, who expressed an interest that the assembled nations could share their experiences.
These intentions were presented during the first day of the Caribbean Nations Security Conference (Cansec) session, where they also highlighted the importance of creating mechanisms to optimize joint military operations.
Likewise, during the activity, the Director of Operations of the Ministry of Defense shared the results of the integration of the capabilities of the armed forces and the actions developed by the health authorities.
Likewise, he cited support for the implementation of mechanisms such as curfews, C5i epidemiological surveillance, and patient care.
“This space has allowed us to show that we have a disciplined military component, organized and made available to our people, in a short period of time to ensure the protection of the population,” said Guerrero Clase.
At the end of the day, Díaz Morfa concluded with the words “without shared information it is as if we are blind. Union makes strength; we propose respect and that we can start from the protocols and guidelines that are needed together, ultimately the most important thing is the will to solve any problem ”.
