Haiti - Politic : Speech by PM Henry at the 77th Ordinary Session of the UN General Assembly
Saturday, September 24, 2022, during the 77th Ordinary Session of the United Nations General Assembly, the Speech of Prime Minister a.i. Ariel Henry was delivered by Jean Victor Généus, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Haiti because of the socio-political situation in Haiti, preventing the Head of Government from leaving the country.

Excerpts from Prime Minister Ariel Henry's speech :

"[...] Mr. Secretary General, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

[...] I am speaking at a time when my country is going through a multidimensional crisis whose consequences threaten democracy and the very foundations of the rule of law [...]

Haiti is at a crossroads, at an extremely difficult but decisive crossroads for its future. [...]

[...] On the issue of security and the restoration of public order, I won't tell anyone here anything by telling you that the activities of armed gangs create a poisonous climate, which poisons the daily life of the population. This is an intolerable situation that has taken on worrying proportions.

The clashes between rival gangs caused a high number of casualties among the population, which forced thousands of people to flee their places of residence to escape the terror of the outlaws.

Mr. Secretary General, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

[...] I want to reaffirm here my determination to put out of harm's way those who want to maintain the chaos and prevent the normalization of the situation. My Government, at the cost of heavy sacrifices, has made available the necessary resources to provide the Police with the appropriate means they need to carry out their missions effectively.

The delivery of armored vehicles and equipment that it lacks is slow. I really regret that the orders placed to better equip the National Police are taking so long to be delivered. The National Police is able to do the job, but it needs robust support from our partners, and adequate training in the field with the help of partners from the international community, in order to give a blow stop at this situation.

Mr. Secretary General, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

[...] Haiti is at a crossroads, at a turning point in its history. We are working on transformative solutions to address the challenges we face. From this rostrum, I want to associate my voice with that of President Biden, who has a good understanding of the Haitian crisis, to launch a solemn appeal to the international community and ask it to stand alongside Haiti and Haitians. . I say thank you to all the Heads of State and Government of the great family of nations, who have expressed their concern about the situation prevailing in my country and who have offered their support to Haiti. Much remains to be done to emerge from the crisis and move towards the social and economic progress to which the Haitian people aspire.

Thank you for your kind attention !"
