iciHaiti - Diversion Canal : Tension rises in the Dominican Republic
While the Dominican Government convened an extraordinary meeting of the National Security Council this Monday morning to address the situation in Haiti and the new crisis at the border https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-40471-icihaiti-flash-abinader-convenes-the-national-security-council-to-discuss-the-situation-in-haiti.html Haitian groups have already started to install culverts in the dug space which will be used for the diversion of water from the Masacre River for commercial irrigation purposes…

On Saturday September 9, a crane was seen on the west bank of the tributary as it laid sections which will be coupled to form the water main.

According to several consistent reports, this work would benefit, among other things, from the support of former senator Waninque Pierre.

Also, it was emphasized that a large group of Haitians remains day and night around the canal, armed with sticks, machetes and stones, to prevent the work from being interrupted and the work destroyed by compatriots affected by the closure of the border and who want the construction of the canal to stop and binational trade to resume.

Meanwhile, agents of the Protected Areas Surveillance Brigade of Haiti met with soldiers of the Dominican Army at the border, without the issues discussed having been revealed

Margarito de León, the Dominican Vonsul in Ouanaminthe, sent a letter to the Haitian authorities to end the conflict that this generated in which he wrote "[...] The reason is to reiterate our intention and to invite you to continue our efforts to seek a harmonious solution, under the protection of the laws and treaties in force. To the impasse created between the two nations by the unilateral action of a group of Haitian citizens on the banks of the Massacre River [...]"

For his part, Santiago Riverón, the mayor of Dajabón, asks the Dominicans to support President Abinader's decision to close the border in part of the province, "given the rebellious attitude that the Haitians maintain in the pursuit of construction illegal Canal."
