For its part in Haiti, Duly Brutus, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in an official statement on behalf of the Haitian Government, congratulated the initiators of the citizen march that, he said, "should not be interpreted as a demonstration against the Dominican Republic, but as a reinforcement of initiatives already undertaken by the Haitian Chancellery to say "NO TO BARBARISM! NO TO HATRED! RESPECT AND PEACE ON THE ISLAND !"
However, the Chancellor Brutus specifies that "the Government of the Republic condemns the violation and unfortunate assault of the premises of the Consulate General of the Dominican Republic in Petion-ville by a small group of malicious individuals who eluded the vigilance the organizers of this peaceful march" http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-13260-haiti-social-the-haitian-flag-waving-on-the-dominican-consulate.html
