Haiti calls for international military assistance to address the insecurity situation facing the country

Haiti’s Council of Ministers has approved this Friday a resolution urging the head of Government, Ariel Henry, to ask for help from the international community and its Armed Forces to contain the gangs that would be undermining the security situation throughout the country.

This has been reflected by the Haitian Government in a publication in the country’s official gazette picked up by ‘Gazette Haiti’, which calls for an intervention of foreign forces in Haiti and its military forces to address the humanitarian crisis caused, among other things, “by the insecurity resulting from the criminal actions of armed gangs and their sponsors.”

In support of its decision, the Council of Ministers has also assured to be alarmed by the risks of a major humanitarian crisis due to the sudden resurgence of cholera, coupled with the accelerated deterioration of the security situation throughout the country.

According to this resolution, Ariel Henry should request and obtain from Haiti’s international partners “effective support through the immediate deployment of specialized Armed Forces, in sufficient numbers, to stop, throughout the country, the humanitarian crisis,” as reported by ‘Le Nouvelliste’.

Also, according to the resolution, “this climate of security” should allow the government to fight “effectively” against cholera, to promote the resumption of fuel and drinking water distribution throughout the country, the functioning of hospitals, the resumption of economic activities, as well as the free movement of people and goods and the reopening of schools.
