Haiti - FLASH : The Government requests the sending of American soldiers to the country
Following the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse, fearing that strategic infrastructures in Haiti (ports, airports, power plants, oil terminals etc.) may be the target of attacks or sabotage, and chaos the Haitian Government Friday 9 July 2021, asked Washington and the United Nations to send military aid to ensure, among other things, the security of these sites.

Regarding this request, Mathias Pierre, the Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister, in charge of electoral questions and relations with political parties declared "After the assassination of the President, we thought that mercenaries could destroy some infrastructures in order to create chaos in the country. During a conversation with the US Secretary of State and the UN, we made this request."

At the UN, a diplomatic source confirmed Haiti's request, stressing that for military support a Security Council resolution was essential.

For their part, the State Department and the Pentagon confirm having received such a request from Haiti and indicated that they were in contact with Port-au-Prince, without specifying whether military staff would be deployed in Haiti.
