Foreign Affairs Minister calls for more support to end conflict in Haiti; says the situation will get worse without intervention
Foreign Affairs Minister Kamina Johnson Smith has reiterated the call for more international support to end the on-going conflict in Haiti, stating that the situation in the country will get worse without intervention.
Haiti has been facing political instability and civil unrest since the assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July 2021.
Several countries have pledged military support, but this has yet to materialize, as gangs in the capital Port au Prince have become emboldened.
Speaking this morning at the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Jamaica’s Foreign Affairs Minister said there must be action to restore order and security in Haiti by bolstering the Haitian national police.
Mrs. Johnson Smith stressed that ordinary Haitians are suffering.
