On his Twitter account, Diaz-Canel sent a message of condolences to the president’s family and ‘to the sisterly Haitian nation,’ and called for peace.

On Wednesday, Haiti’s interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph confirmed on a press release Moise’s assassination at his residence, in the early morning, at the hands of an armed command made up of Spanish-speaking people.

Due to the incident, the president’s wife, Martine Marie Etienne Joseph, was wounded, but died in the hospital where she had been treated.

The current president of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Gaston Browne, summoned for today its member States to discuss the situation in Haiti.

Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister expressed his dismay at the incidents, and described the attack in Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital, as regrettable.
