The new Permanent Representative of the Dominican Republic to the Organization of American States (OAS), Mayerlyn Cordero, today presented her credentials to OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro in a ceremony at the headquarters of the Organization in Washington, DC.

In her speech, Ambassador Cordero recognized that she assumes “the responsibility of representing my country with a solid commitment to continue maintaining its strong relationship and its outstanding presence in this multilateral organization” and highlighted her commitment to continue working “for this Organization continuing to ensure democratic stability in the region, for more and better democracy.” Likewise, noting that the Dominican Republic is one of the founding countries of the OAS, the new representative promised to continue “working with the same dynamism as we have done since 1948 and with a firm commitment to the principles and values that guide Inter-American work.”

For his part, speaking to the Ambassador Cordero, Secretary General Almagro said “your country has played a very important role since the creation of our Organization and has honored the four basic pillars of our daily activity, represented in the defense and promotion of democracy, human rights, hemispheric security and integral development. We recognize in you an essential ally for the Organization of the American States in the defense of our principles and values,” he concluded.

The new representative started her diplomatic carrier in 1989 and was Minister Counselor to the OAS between 1997 and 2017.
