The Foreign Ministry announced Monday that the Japanese Embassy in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince was reopening for the first time since it was closed in February due to instability in the country.

The ministry said the embassy decided to reopen after determining that the security situation had improved.

The embassy closed Feb. 26 and has been operating in the neighboring Dominican Republic since the ministry raised its travel warning level for the Caribbean country, recommending that all Japanese nationals evacuate.
