Haiti - FLASH : The OAS adopts a resolution on the situation in Haiti
"Mr. Chairman and colleagues, the United States welcomes the adoption of today’s OAS Permanent Council resolution concerning the security situation in Haiti.
This resolution represents a crucial step forward in addressing the pressing challenges Haiti faces, and reaffirms our collective commitment to supporting the people of Haiti in their quest for peace, security, and stability."
The new MSS mission, which was initiated at the request of the Haitian government, the UN Secretary General, and various members of civil society, addresses the urgent need to combat insecurity and provide immediate support to the Haitian National Police.
Its success depends on a truly multinational effort, and we urge all fellow OAS member states to contribute funding, equipment, training, and personnel to ensure the mission’s success."
"Of course, we recognize that the ultimate resolution of the situation in Haiti must be determined by the Haitian people themselves.
"Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the Haitian people and help them on their path towards peace, stability, and prosperity."
For his by Sir Ronald Sanders, Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda, President of the Permanent Council of the OAS declared
"As we conclude today’s meeting, it is crucial that we reflect deeply on the continuing plight of the Haitian people. [...]
"The resolution of Haiti’s problems does not end with the disarmament of gangs; that is only a gateway to a much-needed, broader economic and social transformation [...]
"The Haitian people, who have endured so much suffering for so long, deserve a future that aligns with the basic tenets of a civilized and thriving society. [...] They deserve opportunities for employment that offer both sustenance and a path to a dignified life.
"Furthermore, it is our collective responsibility to ensure that the shadow of dictatorship and the blight of corruption are lifted from their lives.
The Haitian people deserve no less than the opportunity to thrive in their own country and in circumstances where their rights are protected, their voices are heard, and their dreams are attainable, and Haitian women deserve a life free of violence and rape.
Let us leave this meeting with an understanding that our work does not end here; but we must get the priorities right, spending our effort and other resources on an agenda that is helpful and meaningful. [...]"
