Haiti - FLASH : Irritated response from Claude Jospeh to President Abinader
The last intervention Monday, of Dominican President Luis Abinader on the networks stressing "that Haiti is a problem due to insecurity" and asking the international community in particular the United States, Canada, France and the European Union, to act and help Haiti urgently to stem the deep instability that the country is experiencing due to the political crisis and armed gangs, has had the redult of irritating Haitian Chancellor Claude Joseph.

Joseph, to remind President Abinader, (on social media), that the Dominican Republic is also experiencing an increase in crime, citing the US State Department in its latest travel warning because of the rise of crime in neighboring land (the Dominican Republic is at level 3: Reconsider your trip and at level 4: Do not travel)

Moreover Chancellor Joseph still in his response to the neighboring Nation, in an interview with the Voice of America the same day recalled "the island has no President. The Haitian Prime Minister does not pass himself off as the spokesperson for the island, this must be equally valid for the Dominican President."

Following statements by Chancellor Jospeh implicating a travel warning from the State Department, the United States Embassy in the Dominican Republic clarified "This warning was based on an increase in Covid cases, and not on an increase in the crime rate This warning was not a comment on the crime rate, [...] it was simply an information to travelers that the cases of Covid-19 in the Dominican Republic are on the increase."

Reacting to these exchanges between the two countries, José Valenzuela, the Dominican Consul General in Ounaminthe, described the response of Minister Joseph to President Abinader as "not very diplomatic" stressing "the only thing the Dominican President did was to give the alert to the international community to dissipate the crisis in Haiti" recalling that the Dominican President has maintained a policy of open and direct collaboration with Haiti at all levels, and that he has vehemently defended Haiti every time he had to intervene in international forums. Concluding "The truth is that President Abinader raised the right thing, the urgent action of the United States, Canada, France and the European Union is imperative to bring tranquility and peace to Haiti. It is also a common wish of other nations."
