At his address during the ceremony of delivery of 11,593 passports to undocumented Haitian citizens in the Dominican republic, Haiti's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonio Rodrigue rejected the notions that a "mass influx" of Haitian nationals into the Dominican Republic will take place after the complete withdrawal of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti ( MINUSTAH). Rodrigue said that such a scenario is not possible, because the Haitian National Police guarantees the security of his side of the border

The highest diplomat of the Haitian government said that the departure of MINUSTAH did not weaken the country's border security in any way, because all necessary measures were being taken to ensure a continued stability at the border.
