Haiti “satisfied” after the visit of an envoy to the Dominican Republic

The envoy of the Prime Minister of Haiti, Ariel Henry, to the Dominican Republic was "satisfied" with the results of the visit he made in the last week to this country, the Haitian embassy in Santo Domingo reported on Monday.

The envoy, Daniel Supplice, met with the Dominican President, Luis Abinader, and with other authorities in the country, as well as with representatives of the United Nations System and with personalities from the economic sphere.

The visit was called to smooth things over, after an exchange of statements between President Abinader and the Haitian Foreign Minister, Claude Joseph, on account of the crisis in Haiti.

In the meetings, the issues of migration and border security were addressed, as well as other matters on the bilateral agenda, advocating for "greater harmony and a true cooperation agenda in Dominican-Haitian relations at all levels"according to the statement.

Supplice was "satisfied with frank and friendly exchanges" in his meetings with the Dominican authorities, the note adds.

The Dominican Government has not reported on this visit, which took place between Monday, November 8 and Sunday, November 14.

The visit was organized after Foreign Minister Joseph’s statements comparing the crisis of violence in Haiti with citizen insecurity in the Dominican Republic, which caused discomfort in the Dominican Government.

Following these statements, the Dominican Government announced the temporary suspension of the special visa program aimed at Haitian students.

In recent weeks, the Dominican authorities have announced a series of measures to curb immigration from Haiti, due to the instability that the neighboring country is experiencing.

The most controversial measure has been the deportation of numerous pregnant women, something that is prohibited in Dominican legislation, but that the authorities of this country have justified due to the large medical expenses that these women generate for the public coffers of the country.
