Linda Thomas Greenfield: “Help and hope are on the way…”
In a significant show of solidarity towards Haiti, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas Greenfield, emphatically stated, “Help and hope are on the way.” This declaration followed a crucial vote on a resolution concerning Haiti, paving the way for international intervention.
Ambassador Greenfield expressed her enthusiasm regarding the recent adoption of the resolution by the United Nations Security Council. The resolution authorizes the intervention of a multinational force in Haiti, with its primary mission being to assist Haitian police forces in combating the criminal gangs that have been wreaking havoc in the country.
This decision marks a critical moment in Haiti’s history and signifies the international community’s commitment to support this Caribbean island nation.
One of the key highlights of this announcement is the massive financial commitment from the United States towards the Mission in Haiti. The United States has pledged to fund the mission with $200 million, demonstrating their dedication to helping Haiti overcome its numerous challenges. These funds will be crucial for the implementation of the resolution and for creating the necessary conditions for stability and progress in Haiti.
Haiti has long faced political, economic, and security challenges, with criminal gangs spreading terror in many regions of the country, impeding stability and development.
