7. Mission to study frontier limits
The Ministry of Foreign Relations has instructed a new commission to
study the installation of the missing small piles that have marked the
frontier between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. With the years,
most of these have disappeared. Commission members are Jose B.
Gautier, Wenceslao Guerrero Pou, William Perez Piantini, Salvador
Bienvenido Brower, Ignacio Caraballo, and the director of the Military
Cartographic Institute. The commission will report to the Ministry its
findings within 45 days. 
The Ministry of Foreign Relations says that the markers will respect
limits established by the 1929 and 1936 treaties signed with Haiti.
