Dominican Republic breaks off Haiti talks over immigration ruling | Reuters


The Dominican government has come under intense international pressure over the ruling, with foreign leaders, United Nations agencies and human rights groups questioning its legal basis.

Gustavo Montalvo, chief of staff to Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina, said in a statement the government will not participate in a meeting with Haitian officials scheduled to be held in Caracas on Saturday.

The decision came a day after Caribbean heads of state agreed to defer an application from the Dominican Republic for membership in CARICOM, the region\’s largest cooperation group, until Santo Domingo addresses the high court\’s ruling.

\”Haiti has decided to take a different route and that has brought an end to our talks for now,\” Montalvo said. via  | Reuters
