Participants joining the meeting 

Addressing an online meeting of the UN Security Council (UNSC) on February 22 on the situation in Haiti and activities of the UN Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) in the country, the Vietnamese diplomat expressed her concern over difficulties and instability in Haiti and condemned acts of violence, kidnapping and extortion by criminal groups causing political and social instability there.

She urged all stakeholders to strengthen dialogue, determine time and prepare well for elections in the country to ensure they will take place in a fair and transparent manner.

The Vietnamese diplomat hailed the BINUH for its recent support for Haiti, and suggested the office and UN working groups identify specific measures to assist Haiti in solving urgent issues, especially the preparation of election, and others related to ensuring security for the people.

Reports delivered at the meeting showed that Haiti continues to face many difficulties, especially those relating to election and constitutional amendment.

 

Accordingly, the government of Haiti is expected to conduct a referendum on amending the constitution in April, and hold elections in September.

Speakers stressed that the African country is witnessing the increasing number of violence, kidnapping and extortion cases caused by crime gangs and groups, causing insecurity and social instability.

Representatives from UNSC member countries condemned acts of violence, attacks, and kidnappings aimed at civilians, especially women and children, and asked the government of Haiti and opposition political parties in the country to enhance dialogues towards political consensus for the upcoming elections.

They highly valued the role played by the BINUH in assisting the Haitian government in political dialogue and constitutional reform, and asked the international community and countries to continue support for the country in addressing current challenges.

Established in 2019, the BINUH is responsible for advising the Government of Haiti in promoting and enhancing political stability as well as many other areas. The UNSC holds regular meetings every 4 months to hear reports on the office’s operation./.VNA
