BRASILIA, May 21 (Xinhua) -- Brazil and Haiti Tuesday pledged concerted efforts Tuesday to fight people trafficking to control Haitians' migration to Brazil.

Addressing a press conference after meeting Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota, visiting Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe said that the two sides will launch a campaign to encourage Haitians to migrate to Brazil through legal means instead of people trafficking.

"We are trying to discourage smuggling rings by facilitating legal migration," said Lamothe, adding that his government has launched a campaign to help the Haitian people migrate through legal means.

The migration of Haitian citizens to Brazil has increased significantly since an earthquake destroyed Haiti's capital city, Port-au-Prince, in 2010.

Lamothe arrived here Monday for a five-day visit to Brazil.
