UN Security Council members arrive in Haiti for 3-day visit – US News

The U.N. said in a statement that the delegation also would assess the implementation of Security Council resolutions such as the strengthening of Haiti’s police force. Council members last year extended the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Haiti by a year and expect to cut the number of troops from 5,021 to 2,370 by June.

In addition to the capital of Port-au-Prince, the council representatives are to visit the northern coastal city of Cap-Haitien.

The visit comes just days after a new Haitian Cabinet and other government leaders were sworn in. Haiti last week also swore in new Prime Minister Evans Paul, prompting supporters of opposition factions call for more protests demanding that Martelly step down. He became president in 2011 and is scheduled to step down next year. via – US News
