Ambassador of Belize to Mexico, Oliver Del Cid, presented his letter of credence to the President of the Republic of Haiti at the National Palace this week.
Del Cid met with Haitian President, Michel Martelly to present his credentials in a ceremony that took place on February 5.
Martelly and Del Cid expressed their countries’ respective commitment to furthering the bilateral relations that exist between both nations. The government of Belize considers this a “strong step” in furthering Haitian and Belizean collaboration.
Del Cid also met with Minister of Foreign Affairs and worship of Haiti, Duly Brutus, at the Haitian National Pantheon Museum, established in memory of the Heroes of the Independence of Haiti, where he made a floral offering.
The Embassy of Belize in Mexico is in charge of relations with the Haitian nation, being Belize’s non-resident embassy to Haiti and also serves as the non-resident High Comission to Jamaica.
Haiti does not have an established consulate or embassy in Belize.
