Haiti - Diplomacy : The Prime Minister Office deplores the incident against the Dominican flag at the border
In a press note, the Communication Office of the Prime Minister informs that the Government of Haiti has taken note of the unfortunate incident which occurred Monday, August 3 on the Haitian-Dominican border at Malpasse-Jimani, specifying " The Dominican flag hoisted on a pole within the limit of Borne 252, located in Dominican territory, was lowered [illegally by Haitians]. As a result of this incident, shots were fired."

Recall that on Monday several Haitians had decided to remove a Dominican flag hoisted on a pole claiming that Haiti had ownership of land up to the Province of Azua. An initiative that provoked the intervention of the Dominican soldiers of the Specialized Land Border Security Corps (CESFRONT) who faced throwing stones and bottles thrown by highly motivated Haitians before responding by firing Read : https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31456-haiti-flash-confrontation-between-haitians-and-cesfront-soldiers-at-the-border.html

Continuing, the Prime Minister Offcie specifies in his note "[...] The Government wishes to inform that the issue of the Haitian and Dominican flags at Terminal 252 has been resolved, in accordance with a prior agreement between the Republic of Haiti and the Republic Dominican, following meetings organized during the months of January and February 2020. In order to normalize the situation, a special ceremony had been planned during which the flags of both countries had to be hoisted at the same time on both sides of the border line.

Therefore, the Government deplores this misunderstanding which tends to harm friendly relations between the two countries. It took the opportunity to inform the public that an investigation was opened to determine the perpetrators and co-perpetrators of this act.

Arrangements have also been made to hoist the two flags at Terminal 252, in order to maintain calm and serenity on the Haitian-Dominican border, Malpasse-Jimani."
