08/11/2009 | Haitian migrants a heavy load for Dominican Republic, OAS chief says

DominicanToday-Staff

OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza yesterday acknowledged that the problem of Haitian migrants is a heavy burden for Dominican Republic, and requires the international communityís support.

 

“Although Dominican Republic’s level of development is far beyond Haiti’s, it’s still a country of the developing world, with its needs and problems in education, health,” among others, Insulza said, speaking in the 2nd Meeting of Security Ministers of the Americas.

Interviewed by news source listin.com.do, the OAS official noted that for a developed country to receive that number (between 700,000 and one million) of immigrants is already a problem. “It’s a burden (for DR) that the international community somehow must help mitigate.”

He said the aid has worked, but little, “so there must be more support since there’s the notion that some of the Haitian population’s problems or a part of them are solved in Dominican Republic.”
