Dominicans demand formal apology, Haiti says no way

Who will crack first? The Dominican Government declared that they will not seat down with the Haitian Government and discuss anything related to migration until the Haitian Government formally present an apology for the comments made by the Haitian President Michel Martelly at the Organization of American States recently and his Foreign Minister Lener Renauld.


The authorities stated that under no circumstances that they will accept the image of the Dominican Republic be affected as they are ready to defend their morals and respect.

On the other hand, Haitian authorities declined the request made by the Dominican Republic for a formal apology. According to the Communications Minister, Rotchild Francois Jr., "the Haitian government would not be apologizing to the Dominican Republic for charges it has made against it that have been proven true."

What do you think, will there be an apology coming from the Haitian government or not?
