Haiti Leader Slams Jamaica Over Aristide Visit
Fri Mar 12, 2004 07:27 PM ET

By Michael Christie and Ibon Villelabeitia
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (Reuters) - Haiti's new leader fired a diplomatic broadside at Jamaica on Friday for allowing ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to visit, while U.S. and French troops came under renewed attack by gunmen.

Prime Minister Gerard Latortue, who was sworn in on Friday, said Aristide's planned return to the Caribbean had already stoked tensions, and Jamaica's decision to allow the former slum priest to visit from next week was an "unfriendly act."

Latortue announced he might fly to Haiti's Caribbean neighbor this weekend to pursue an agreement with Jamaican Prime Minister P.J. Patterson to limit Aristide's stay.

"Since the word was known yesterday afternoon that Aristide is coming to Jamaica we have observed an increase in tensions in Port-au-Prince," Latortue told reporters.
