U.N. Security Councils ends visit to Haiti|The Miami Herald


“We are trying to maintain the support to the government of Haiti for the main goal, which is to have elections,” said Chile’s U.N. Ambassador Cristián Barros Melet, the Security Council president. “But it’s too early to say if it’s necessary to continue with the same configuration or not. We have time to do that. It is a very complex process we are living here in the political area.”

During a visit by Barros and the other representatives of the 15-member council to the Haiti National Police (HNP) training academy earlier in the day, Justice Minister Pierre-Richard Casimir reiterated President Michel Martelly’s request that a planned reduction of the 4,957 military troops be delayed until after elections for president, 20 Senate seats, the entire 99-member chamber of deputies and more than 4,000 local posts are completed this year. via | The Miami Herald.
