Border shut down with Haiti to commence this Friday, per President Luis Abinader’s directive

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader has ordered the complete closure of the Dominican Republic’s border with Haiti. This closure will apply to land, air, and sea routes and will go into effect at 6:00 a.m. next Friday.

During his announcement, the President emphasized that the Ministry of Defense, which includes the Army, Navy, and Air Force, is fully prepared to enforce this directive.

Abinader noted that the Haitian government has acknowledged its limited control within its territory. He assured the public that any uncontrollable situation within Haiti will not continue to be uncontrollable for the Dominican Republic.

In addition, the President has instructed the General Directorate of Immigration to prohibit the entry of provocateurs. The identities of these individuals will be revealed at a later time.

He expressed the government’s refusal to accept provocations, specifically referring to the construction of a canal intended to divert water from the Masacre River. Abinader emphasized that there will be no violence within Dominican territory, as the Armed Forces are well prepared to counter any attempted violence.

Furthermore, the President revealed that the issue will be brought before the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization next week.

This announcement comes at a time when Dominican and Haitian technicians have been holding talks since 11:00 a.m. at the Dominican Ministry of Foreign Affairs in an effort to find a solution to the current conflict.
