Institute claim sectors of Haiti that want confrontations with the Dominican Republic are behind border incidents

Santo Domingo.- Dr. Wilson Gómez Ramírez, the president of the Duartiano Institute, expressed deep concern regarding the tense and delicate situation on the Dominican border with Haiti. He emphasized that provocative actions from sectors in Haiti, which aim to incite confrontations and potentially lead to armed conflicts, are alarming.

Gómez Ramírez criticized international organizations like the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations (UN) for their seemingly ineffective responses to the escalating situation in Haiti. He also noted that even major nations committed to stabilizing Haiti, such as the United States, France, and Canada, have not shown sufficient concern.

The Duartiano Institute called on the OAS, UN, and the governments of the United States, France, and Canada to deploy efforts to facilitate a peaceful, dialogued, and mutually agreed-upon solution to benefit both nations.

Gómez Ramírez stressed the need for the Dominican Republic to adopt all necessary measures to safeguard its integrity, national interests, and sovereignty in the face of these challenges.

Furthermore, Gómez Ramírez emphasized the importance of definitively resolving ownership matters of real estate in the Border Zone. He pointed out that legislators should comply with the constitutional provision that protects terrestrial sovereignty by setting specific legal requirements for the acquisition and transfer of real estate property in the Border Zone, prioritizing Dominicans and national interests.

The Duartiano Institute stressed that this legal reservation, established in the constitution, plays a crucial role in safeguarding the Dominican Republic’s strategic territories and land sovereignty.

No International support because it’s obvious it was an emotional, politically motivated, and miscalculated move to close the border. RD must deal with the consequences of their actions. The Haitians decided to close the border, so what is the fuss about? We don’t have to deal; you get your wish, stop crying.

Hopefully they will keep it close forever. The only ones who are getting rich of Haitian labor and money is rich foreigners and rich Dominican families. Nothing for the regular Dominican citizen

Crazy because we have the same issue in Haiti. The only people getting rich on the poor people’s back are foreigners (notably of Lebanese, Palestinians and Syrian descent)

The closure of the border must be turned into national policy. No more allowance of haitians to travel to 3rd countries via DR. Haiti is a country (if you can call it as such) that is run by a clan of criminals. The goverment should continue with the wall construction, the mass deportations, the mechanization fo the agriculture, and the implementation of the biometric records at the border. no more leeway for haitians to import their chaos to DR.

True, but beside the Haitian problem Dominicans should remember that Americans are buying resources and land and are also a threat to Dominican sovereignty. I think Dominicans focus so much on the Haitian issue that we get distracted by this other problem regarding the US.

So far, Dominicans are the one crying for border opening. Keep all Haitianos out of your country and stop complaining about us.
