United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken assured Tuesday that they are working to achieve a transition in Haiti through elections that have the support of the Haitian people.
Blinken was interviewed during a roundtable during a session of the Media Summit of the Americas, during which press freedom was discussed.
The head of the American diplomacy underlined that they continue to work for a transition in Haiti and continue to face the violence of the gangs which plagues the country and which does “terrible damage” to the Haitian people.
“We continue to work to try to find ways to support the people of Haiti, who have endured more than their fair share of problems in recent years, both human and natural,” the official said.
“So in all of these ways, we are working, including with partners in our hemisphere, to try to support the people of Haiti. But we want to see them have a truly representative government, and that is preparing for new elections in the time to come,” he added.
