Haiti: United Nations Extends Peacekeeping Mission For One Year

“Given recent achievements and the evolution of the challenges facing Haiti, the ongoing reconfiguration of MINUSTAH should continue,” Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in a recent report on MINUSTAH. “Nine years after its initial deployment, it is worth examining whether a large multidimensional peacekeeping operation is still the most appropriate form of international support to Haiti.”

Ban said he would engage with Haiti’s government and UN Member States to “explore the best way for the UN to continue contributing to the country’s stability and development.”

That could include the replacement of MINUSTAH with a “smaller, more focused assistance mission,” Ban said. via Caribbean Journal
