The National Security Council is an advisory body created on February 12, 2021 for the purpose of advising the executive branch on policy issues and national security and defense strategies.

According to the government, information provided by the diplomatic community and government investigative bodies indicates that the canal works are being carried out by individuals and that its promoters are businessmen and politicians seeking to secure water for commercial purposes.

He said that the Haitian authorities confirm that they do not support or participate in the project, and also acknowledge that they do not have the ability to resolve internal conflicts, due to the loss of the monopoly of state power at the hands of criminal organizations.

The National Executive confirmed that this plan violates Article 10 of the Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Arbitration between the two neighboring regions and is being promoted by Haitian agents with the intention of harming their government and provoking a bilateral conflict.
