Dominican, Haitian leaders poised for talks

Santo Domingo.- In a press conference at the National Palace, President Luis Abinader on Wed. said that Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry approached the Dominican Government through diplomatic channels yesterday to indicate that he wanted to maintain the best relations with the Dominican Republic.

Henry stated that he wants to speak with President Abinader, who promised that he will contact him shortly.

The Haitian head of government said he was interested in maintaining communication with the Dominican leader and that he did not agree with any communication that was reckless in that regard.

Verify Students

President Luis Abinader explained that Haitian university students who have a visa to study in the Dominican Republic must be checked through a verification process in order to obtain the renewal, which will no longer be automatic.

A poor country with POOR diplomacy trying to make a valid points comparing DR with Haitian insecurity, tweeting with emotions and not thinking consequences of Dumb comparative, one thing is beeing nationalist on thing is to ignore Haiti’s problem which needs an intervention to put a stop on criminality and kidnaping in the western part of the island, Haitians dont know how to behave and govern themself they are smart enough to come to DR take advantages in our land be helped by the Dominicans and still try to argue with the only country thats helping you because CARICOM abandoned haiti long time ago in fact they should be qsking visa to full CARICOM members but they dont even have flights with haiti.

Claude joseph got very hatefull history with the Dominicans we have videos and photos of him manifesting in Haiti burning the Dominican Flag, the man on charge of Haiti internationals affairs is ruling with Emotions, very dumb very unprofesional

Just being stuck on the same little island does not mean we have to get along or even have relationships.

Haitians have a right to burn any flag they want in their own country. Just as dominicans have the same right in their own country..

Talk is all that is thrown out to the public at this time. Talk is not changing things for the better.

Haiti needs to have an international military force in Haiti to maintain peace and order, to stabilize the country. No matter who is the Haitian leader the RD negotiates with at this time is of little value as he will have little backing. The country needs strong oaks, not unsupported mouthpieces waving their branches of fruitless words into the wind.

There should be no talk or contact between Haiti and DR. Haiti needs to be ruled by Haitian nationalists. The gangs need to get rid of this prime minister and all globalist Haitians. SEAL the border.
