In April, President Fernández announced a plan to reform and modernize the armed forces. Among other things, a new national security and defense directorate will be established and, more controversially, the military will have increased influence over issues related to national development. In part, the measures came as a result of pressure from the United States, which has long complained that the military in the Caribbean and Central American countries are not equipped to meet the new global security threats from terrorism and narcotics. For the Dominican Republic, the commander of US Southern Command, Admiral James Stravidis, during a visit to the Dominican Republic, promised to help improve border control of Haiti, which is known as a transhipment station in the international drug trade.
