Haiti - Politic : Claude Joseph deplores the stoppage of the construction of the irrigation canal of the Massacre River
On Saturday, former Prime Minister ai Claude Joseph deplored the halt in the construction of the irrigation canal which was to capture water from the Massacre River, in the northern area of ​​the Haitian border, to irrigate agricultural land in the towns of Meac, Ferie and Derac, adjacent to the municipality of Ounaminthe.

On his Tweeter account he writes "It is regrettable to note that the works for the construction of an irrigation intake on the Massacre River have been abandoned. This deplorable situation is tangible proof that the project led by the oligarchs to erase the legacy of Pdt Jovenel is continuing its course."

Remember that the construction of this politically sensitive irrigation canal is the source of great tension with the Dominican Republic, which accuses each other because of differences in the interpretation of the historic treaties signed between the two Nations.

Faced with the rise of tensions around the construction of this canal, ordered by Jovenel Moïse, the Dominican and Haitian authorities have left it to a technical commission to determine whether the water that would be taken by this canal would affect the flow of the river Massacre, a natural resource that the two countries share https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33953-haiti-flash-dominican-geologist-osiris-de-leon-denies-haiti-s-assertions.html .

Let's recall that in June 2021, President Luis Abinader asked the Haitian government to stop the construction of this canal https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33945-haiti-flash-canal-on-the-massacre-river-in-haiti-dominican-president-abinader-raises-the-tone.html affirming that the Dominican Republic had "many options" from the diplomatic point of view to demand that Haiti stop this work, but that he preferred an agreement international-business.html

On September 29, 2021 at his official residence, Prime Minister ai Ariel Henry confirmed that the Government intended to continue work on the irrigation canal capturing water from the Massacre River, stopped in early August 2021, the cost of which is estimated at around 50 million gourdes been followed by no concrete effect.
