Haiti - Security : USA will not help Haiti to have an army
To less than one month of the from the taking of the oath of the next President of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, the first disagreement with the United States appears.

Recall that during his campaign, Jovenel Moïse had declared "The Armed Forces of Haiti is a constitutional prerogative [...] A country is not master of itself if it does not have an Armed Force [...] the strength of a country is based on a defense system that is strong, a modern army that is based on the objective of ensuring the protection of the country" and subsequently on the Voice of America he had declared "[...] The Army of Haiti has so far figured in the Constitution. Do not be afraid to say so. Haiti has its essence in the army [...]" without knowing, as was the case under the presidency of Martelly, how Haiti intended to finance the costs of this future army...

This clear political will to provide Haiti with an army will not be supported, particularly by Uncle Sam, if we are to believe the recent statements of the former American Ambassador accredited to Haiti and the Special Coordinator of Haiti to the State Department Kenneth Merten,who spoke at an interview on the Voice of America.

While acknowledging that the creation of an army remains a strictly Haitian affair, he wanted to clarify "We have always supported a civilian police to ensure the security of Haiti. We've spent a lot of money to have a professional police [...] It's hard to imagine that the United States are ready to make a financial contribution to an armed force. The taxpayers, the State Department and the White House would not welcome that."
