Haiti - Security : The UN Security Council extends for one year the mandate of the Minustah
Wednesday, the members of the UN Security Council in a resolution have extended for one year (until October 15, 2016) the mandate of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) and decided that the military component of the mission could reach 2,370 soldiers and police component 2,601 people.

They also stated their intention to consider, on the basis of the examination they will conduct between now and October 15, 2016 the overall capacity of Haiti to provide security and stability and security conditions on the ground, "the possibility of a withdrawal of the Minustah and a transition towards a future UN presence as of October 15, 2016 at the earliest, in order to continue to assist the Government of Haiti to consolidate peace."

In this regard, the Council request the Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon to dispatch a strategic evaluation mission in Haiti and at the end of it, to make recommendations regarding the presence and the future role of the UN in Haiti.

Council members, however, said that "any development of the configuration of the force should depend on security conditions on the ground in order to provide MINUSTAH and the National Police of Haiti the ability to provide security in the context of the electoral and political process."

Council members said that Haiti is at a turning point towards the consolidation of stability and democracy and that it is essential that "political leaders and stakeholders in the country dialogue and find compromise to ensure the achievements of recent years, so that Haiti is firmly committed towards sustainable stability and economic development and that Haitians assume an even greater part of responsibility in this regard."
