Haiti - Politic : Ban Ki-moon declares «the time has come for a gradual withdrawal»
Yesterday, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has estimated that the time for a "gradual withdrawal" of the UN mission in Haiti (Minsutah) had come "I think that the time has come for a gradual withdrawal of the Minustah and that its role must be ensured by the Haitians, but this should be discussed between the UN and the Haitian Government."

During the debate on Haiti, which took place this Friday morning, at the Security Council in New York, the Special Representative of Secretary General for Haiti, Mariano Fernández, indicated that "The situation in Haiti continues to be fragile and reversals could generate a new crisis. The future stability of Haiti and its eventual prosperity continue to depend on the political will of its leaders and citizens, as well as on the support of the Security Council and the international community as a whole...

[...] The current situation allows us to consider a reduction of staff. This should be accompanied by an adequate response [...] to the political process, to the consolidation of public authority, capacity building of the state and the creation of institutions of rule of law...

[...] The recent political transition experienced by Haiti has not been without difficulties."
stressing the positive signal of the candidacy of Garry Conille, an official for many years at the United Nations, as candidate for Prime Minister.

The representative of Guatemala, Gert Rosenthal declared "The Minustah shouldn't abandon Haiti prematurely it is necessary to ensure that the UN will not be forced to return to this country over the next decade insisting that political stability in Haiti should be an objective of the international community. He also worried about the current political impasse between the President and parliament and their inability to agree on the nomination of a Prime Minister. He said that this situation might to undermine the political progress and worsen the state of security in Haiti.

The representative of Haiti Mr. Jean Wesly Cazeau, welcomed the responsiveness of the Secretary General facing the acts that pose suspicions about certain elements of the Minsutah. He welcomed the work of the Mission in the field of the police facing a security issue that is not yet fully under control. He concluded by stressing that a sudden withdrawal of the Mission would be against productive and would create conditions not conducive to massive investment and sustainable development, especially since the conditions are not yet fully met.
