U.N. urges Haiti to put country above all interests – La Prensa


“Not everyone in Haiti will be able to get exactly what he or she wants in the coming days or in the coming years, but it will be critical that all actors (…) put the overall welfare of Haiti before one’s particular interest,” said Power during a press conference at the local U.N. headquarters in the capital.

The U.N. delegation members said that they arrived in Haiti not to take sides in the political dispute in progress, but to support the Haitian people and leave with a better understanding of how the international community can help Haiti.

The members of the Security Council, taking note of the delicacy and fragility of the political situation during an election year, said that they saw great signs of progress in areas such as health, education, the removal of debris and the resettlement of the people displaced in the 2010 earthquake that left more than 200,000 dead. via La Prensa
