President Louis Abinader has called for cooperation with international organizations to continue a full investigation into the assassination of President Jovnell Moyes in Haiti.
During a visit to the Sixth Battalion of Hunters in the castle of the municipality of Constance in the province of La Vega, he said, “We understand that the international community must have a more radical approach than it is now.”
Similarly, he said the country had not sought assistance for investigations into the place since the assassination of the Haitian president.
He recalled that he had no information about the alleged Colombians and those who were walking in the country and that the country had an agreement with Colombia that both countries did not require a visitor visa.
The president explained that they had decided not to participate, although they could cooperate directly.
“Our position was very clear. At one point the position told us to mediate. We told them we would make the place easier and we would help, but for obvious reasons our country could not enter into the investigation directly,” Abinader said. He promised a “complete peace and security” on the Dominican-Haitian border.
“Dominicans should not feel fear or concern,” he said.
Army members congratulated them on their work on the border to protect Dominican territory after the massacre.
“I know what they are doing at this time of protecting the border against the situation in the neighboring country,” the president said.
The head of state is stepping down from his presidential agenda in the province of La Vega, despite being suspended for a week following Moyes’ assassination.
