Haiti - Reconstruction : Priority of Preval, change the mandate of the Minustah !
Maria Angela Holguin, Colombian Minister of Foreign Affairs, accompanied by her Dominican counterpart, Carlos Morales Troncoso have met this week the Haitian President René Préval and Prime Minister Jean Max Bellerive.

During this meeting, President Préval has stressed the importance that the international community, leaves Haiti take control of its own reconstruction. "Who better that the Haitians can define their priorities? Haiti is for the Haitians", said Morales Troncoso expressing the support of the Dominican Republic to the Haitian Government's position. René Préval spoke about the importance to change the actions of the UN Mission for Stabilization in Haiti (Minustah) in order that this Mission, become more involved in the development of the country that in security tasks for which it was originally mandated "The first priority is to change the mandate of UN mission... the second is to give to the government and to the people of Haiti, the leadership of the reconstruction" declared the Haitian President to a journalist from the Dominican press at the end of the meeting.

While most the political actors and of the civil society in Haiti as well as the population, are for a scheduled departure of the Minustah, this is clearly not in the agenda of the outgoing President, although at the end of his mandate, he engages a little more, the future Government in the choices, that are not necessarily shared.

Maria Angela Holguin confirmed that President Préval had accepted the invitation of the President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos and that he will participate to the meetings of the Security Council on April 6, as former U.S. President and Co-President of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC), Bill Clinton and eight foreign ministers of the Caribbean region, including the Dominican Republic.
