The Dominican government´s tolerance of Haitian authorities have reached its limit
Santo Domingo.- The current and former presidents of the Senate on Thursday said the Dominican government´s tolerance of Haitian authorities have reached its limit, and called for more vigorous response to its “nonsense.”
“Dominican Republic´s tolerance has exceeded parameters, the limits of what a nation should withstand, which has been considerate and respected by the Dominican Republic,” said Senate president Cristina Lizardo.
She asked the Presidency and the senior diplomats to seek other measures, including other markets for domestic products to reject the neighboring country´s intentions.
“I think the Dominican Republic has the ability to seek other markets, what happens is that the country´s gesture of solidarity and consideration with the Haitian people has prevailed,” although Port-au-Prince ´s attitude, she says isn’t “reciprocal.”
Former Senate president Reinaldo Pared said in response to Haiti´s ban on the entry of 23 Dominican products to Haitian territory through border crossings, the Dominican government should seek alternatives “without neglecting the Haitian people.”
“Enough of withstanding so much nonsense and bullshit from the Haitian government,” Pared said, noting that Haiti´s ban “harms the Haitian people the most,” and despite that Port-au-Prince is aware of trade´s importance for the Dominican business sector.
Dominican Exporters Association (ADOEXPO) president Sadala Khoury on Thursday placed the losses for local exporters from the ban at 200 million dollars.
