U.N. Security Council Envoys to Visit Haiti — Naharnet

The visit from January 23 to 25 will be to assess prospects for stability in Haiti, which has been struggling since the fall of president Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004, Chilean Ambassador Cristian Barros Melet said Monday. “The objective is to provide support to the Haitian process,” said the Chilean envoy, whose country holds this month’s presidency of the 15-member council.The council decided in October to extend the mandate of the U.N. mission in Haiti but cut its strength by more than half, from 5,000 troops to 2,370. The U.N. police contingent will remain unchanged at 2,601. via — Naharnet
